Gene: Inha (inhibin subunit alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Inha
Name: inhibin subunit alpha
RGD ID: 2912
Description: Enables inhibin binding activity. Involved in male gonad development; negative regulation of follicle-stimulating hormone secretion; and ovarian follicle development. Located in several cellular components, including neuronal cell body; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Part of inhibin A complex and inhibin B complex. Biomarker of Leydig cell tumor. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in prostate carcinoma. Orthologous to human INHA (inhibin subunit alpha); INTERACTS WITH (S)-amphetamine; (S)-colchicine; 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethane.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: inhibin alpha; inhibin alpha chain; inhibin alpha subunit; MGC93593
