[…] The cellular component (CC), molecular function (MF) and biological process (BP) of the proteins identified by iTRAQ were annotated by the Blast2GO software (; GO functional classification and enrichment analysis were also performed to identify GO terms that were significantly enriched in DEPs using DAVID analysis ( The myogenic DEPs and predicted protein interaction network was illustrated by STRING ( and Cytoscape 3.1.0 ( Relative expression of proteins was based on the ratio of the reporter ions of peptides using Mascot software. T-test was used to analyze the p-value. Moreover, the protein with the 1.5-fold change as well as the p value less than 0.05 was designated the DEPs. Statistical analyses were conducted with SPSS 10.0. […]
