Early activation of BMP signaling may mediate bexarotene-promoted myogenic specification. a Schematic of BMP signaling. Factors differentially regulated by bexarotene are texted in blue. b Members of BMP pathway were differentially expressed in bexarotene- or RA-treated EBs. c Shh and Wnts differentially expressed in bexarotene- and RA-treated EBs. Values are given as a fold change relative to their corresponding values in untreated EBs that are indicated by a dashed line. d Representational diagram of the inferred influence of bexarotene in the enhancement of myogenic specification
