 Gene Information 
Gene Name Mstn
Old Gene Names for Mstn Gdf8
Gene Description myostatin [Source:MGI Symbol;Acc:MGI:95691]
MGI phenotype Homozygotes for targeted and spontaneous mutations exhibit markedly increased size of striated muscle due to both hyperplasia and hypertrophy, reduced adiposity, and increased bone mineral density.
