Follicle stimulating hormone enables ovarian folliculogenesis to the antral follicle stage and is essential for Sertoli cell proliferation and maintenance of sperm quality in the testis. Members of the pituitary glycoprotein hormone family, of which FSH is one consist of a shared alpha chain and a beta chain encoded by a separate gene. The FSH beta gene encodes the beta subunit of follicle stimulating hormone.
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) isa hormone found in humans and other animals. It is synthesized and secretedby gonadotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland. FSH regulates thedevelopment, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of thebody. FSH and Luteinizing hormone (LH) act synergistically in reproduction.
