The precise regulation of the anterior pituitary is achieved by the cell-specific and combined actions of central, peripheral and local factors. Activins, inhibins, and follistatins were first discovered as gonadal factors with actions on FSH production from pituitary gonadotropes. With the realization that these factors are expressed in a wide array of(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effects of glucocorticoids and gonadal steroids on the expression of inhibin/activin subunits and follistatin of the anterior pituitary and test the hypothesis that resulting changes in the local activin/inhibin/follistatin tone contribute to steroid effects on follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) production from(More)
