Identifying new receptors in the regulation of fertility

Bernard Daniel J

Inhibins and activins were discovered based on their abilities to inhibit and stimulate follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) secretion from pituitary gonadotrope cells. These ligands are members of the TGFbeta superfamily of secreted ligands. Current dogma suggests that activin B produced by gonadotropes stimulates FSH production in an autocrine/paracrine manner. Inhibins A and B from the gonads suppress FSH by competing for binding to activin receptors. This binding is aided by...
