This domain family is found in eukaryotes, and is approximately 70 amino acids in length. The family is found in association with pfam00010, pfam01586. There is a conserved CSD sequence motif. Myf5 is responsible for directing cells to the skeletal myocyte lineage during development. Myf5 is likely to act in a similar way to the other MRF4 proteins such as MyoD which perform the same function. These are histone acetyltransferases and histone deacetylases which activate and repress genes involved in the myocyte lineage.
