The activins (dimers of βA or βB subunits, encoded by the genes Inhba and Inhbb, respectively) are TGF-β superfamily members that have roles in reproduction and development. Whereas mice homozygous for the Inhba-null allele demonstrate disruption of whisker, palate and tooth development, leading to neonatal lethality, homozygous Inhbb-null mice are viable, fertile and have eye defects. To determine if these phenotypes were due to spatiotemporal expression differences of the ligands or… CONTINUE READING
