Definitely interesting, but there is still a lot of speculation and a lot of assumptions involved with both the original source and myostatin itself.

The most interesting thing to me is the possibility (not necessarily probability) that myostatin, which is actually an inhibitor and likely does so in association with the mitochondria, although not associated directly with mtDNA, is associated indirectly, and mtDNA of course is passed on strictly by mares, which could of course turn the stallion world upside down...
