Extracellular matrix components have important regulatory functions during cell proliferation and differentiation. In recent study, extracellular matrix were shown to have a strong effect on skeletal muscle differentiation. Here, we aimed to elucidate the effects of extracellular matrix protein 2 (ECM2), an extracellular matrix component, on the differentiation of bovine skeletal muscle-derived satellite cells (MDSCs). Western blot and immunofluorescence analyses were used to elucidate the ECM2 expression pattern in bovine MDSCs during differentiation in vitro. CRISPR/Cas9 technology was used to activate or inhibit ECM2 expression to study its effects on the in vitro differentiation of bovine MDSCs. ECM2 expression was shown to increase gradually during bovine MDSC differentiation, and the levels of this protein were higher in more highly differentiated myotubes. ECM2 activation promoted MDSC differentiation, whereas its suppression inhibited the differentiation of these cells. Here, for the first time, we demonstrated the importance of ECM2 expression during bovine MDSC differentiation; these results could lead to treatments that help to increase beef cattle muscularity.
