myoblast

(Science: pathology) cell that by fusion with other myoblasts gives rise to myotubes that eventually develop into skeletal muscle fibres. The term is sometimes used for all the cells recognisable as immediate precursors of skeletal muscle fibres. Alternatively, the term is reserved for those post mitotic cells capable of fusion, others being referred to as presumptive myoblasts.
