Skeletal muscle progenitors are specified during embryogenesis and in addition have recently been found to be generated from either mesenchymal or neural stem cells in the adult. We review recent progress in identifying the signals and transcription factors that control skeletal muscle formation during embryogenesis and in the adult.
