Halevy O, Piestun Y, Rozenboim I, Yablonka Reuveni Z. In ovo exposure to monochromatic green light promotes skeletal muscle cell proliferation and affects myofiber growth in posthatch chicks. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol. 2006;290:R1062-70 pubmed
..We suggest that the stimulatory effect of in ovo illumination on posthatch muscle growth is the result of enhanced proliferation and differentiation of adult myoblasts and myofiber synchronization. ..
