Meaning of follistatin

A broadly distributed protein that binds directly
to activins. It functions as an activin
antagonist, inhibits follicle stimulating hormone
secretion, regulates cell differentiation, and
plays an important role in embryogenesis.
Follistatin is a single glycosylated polypeptide
chain of approximately 37-kDa and is not a member
of the inhibin family. Follistatin also binds and
neutralizes many members of the transforming
growth factor beta family.
