Myoblast Fusion

This graphic depicts normal myoblast (early muscle cells with a single nucleus) fusing together to form myocytes (multinucleated muscle cells) during myogenesis. The cascade is disrupted in Carey-Fineman-Ziter syndrome, because of a defect in the membrane protein, myomaker, which is required for cell-cell fusion.
