The C2C12 cell line, a mouse myoblast line, was used here to study the regulatory factors in myogenic differentiation. After cultured in differentiation medium for 3 days, these cells differentiated into myotubes (Green) containing multiple nuclei (Blue). The myoblasts were transfected with the locked nucleic acid (LNA) anti-miR-1. You can see the myotubes are shorter in average compared to the control in the absence of miR-1.This image is one of different treatments in Figure 6B from JCB 189: 1157-1169, 2010.

The image was taken by leica DMI 4000B microscope equipped with a QImaging RETIGA Exi camera and Leica 10X/0.22 lens. Myosin heavy chain (MHC) expressed in myotubes was labeled by MF-20 mouse antibody followed by FITC-anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody. Nuclei were stained by DAPI. MHC and nuclei were pseudocolored in green and blue, respectively.
