Activin stabilizes follicle-stimulating hormone-beta messenger ribonucleic acid levels.

Activin, a gonadal peptide, stimulates FSH secretion in association with an increase in FSH beta messenger RNA (mRNA) levels at the level of the anterior pituitary gland. The goal of these studies was to determine whether the effects of recombinant human activin A (rhActivin A) are exerted at the post-transcriptional level by affecting the stability of FSH… (More)
