Key findings:

  • RGMa and RGMb expression patterns in neural tissues are conserved in gnathostome vertebrates.

  • RGMa might be associated with muscle stem cells capable of undertaking myogenesis, and RGMb with cells ready to enter myogenic differentiation.

  • RGMa and RGMb may promote myogenesis by modulating bone morphogenetic signaling and Shh signal transduction.

  • RGM family members may act in maintaining notochord integrity and longitudinal axis formation.
