Serum binding proteins (BPs) have been identified for several peptide and protein hormones, and their presence has significant implications for the biological action of the hormone. Follistatin (FS) has been identified as an activin- and inhibin-BP in tissues, serum, and follicular fluid of several species, including humans. In this study, the binding kinetics of FS for activin and inhibin were characterized in human serum using gel filtration chromatography and compared to those of pure… CONTINUE READING
