Inhibin, a feedback inhibitor of pituitary FSH secretion, and its homodimer, activin, have been the subject of a growing body of literature in the last 5 years. These factors play a role not only in endocrine feedback in the reproductive system but also in paracrine and autocrine regulation of both reproductive and nonreproductive organs, including the liver, kidney, and brain. Additionally, the messages coding for both subunits and their receptors are exquisitely regulated, both spatially and… CONTINUE READING
