Neurofibromin, the protein product of the neurofibromatiosis type 1 NF1 gene, has two alternate isoforms which are generated by alternative splicing of two exons. One of these isoforms containing exon 48a is expressed at highest levels in muscle. Since neurofibromin is a p21‐ras regulator and has been recently shown to be modulated during Schwann cell differentiation, we examined the expression of the NF1 gene product during in vitro muscle differentiation. Previous work demonstrated that C2
