Alternate Names for Recombinant Mouse Inhibin A Protein, CF
inhibin alpha chain
Inhibin A is a member of the TGF-beta superfamily of proteins (1). Mature Inhibin A is a disulfide-linked dimer composed of alpha and beta subunits (1). Inhibin A shares a common alpha subunit with the closely related protein Inhibin B but has a unique beta subunit ( beta A) (2-4). The mature alpha subunit of mouse Inhibin A has a predicted molecular weight of 14.7 kDa and shares 80% and 97% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with the human and rat orthologs, respectively. The mature beta subunit of this mouse protein has a predicted molecular weight of 13 kDa and shares 93% and 100% aa sequence identity with the human and rat orthologs, respectively. Inhibin binds and antagonizes ActRIIA and ActRIIB in complex with the TGF-beta RIII and/or IGSF1 co-receptors and subsequently acts to suppress Activin-induced Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) secretion (1, 5-7). Inhibins are produced by gonadal cells in both males and females (8). They are thought to be involved in the regulation of gametogenesis, and embryonic and fetal development (8, 9). Elevated concentrations of Inhibins are associated with pregnancy, preeclampsia, and ovarian cancer, and Inhibin A levels are typically measured during prenatal screening for Down’s syndrome (10-14).
