Gene: FSHB (follicle stimulating hormone subunit beta) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FSHB
Name: follicle stimulating hormone subunit beta
Description: Exhibits follicle-stimulating hormone activity. Predicted to contribute to hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of steroid biosynthetic process; regulation of signaling receptor activity; and transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to cytoplasm; extracellular space; and follicle-stimulating hormone complex. Implicated in amenorrhea and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 24 without anosmia. Biomarker of severe acute respiratory syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: follicle stimulating hormone beta subunit; follicle stimulating hormone, beta polypeptide; follicle-stimulating hormone beta subunit; follitropin beta chain; follitropin subunit beta; follitropin, beta chain; FSH-B; FSH-beta; HH24
