XB-GENEPAGE-486295
Gene Symbol:
fst

Gene Name:
follistatin

Synonyms:
xfs , follistatin , foll ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
activin and bmp7 antagonist, also antagonizes bmp2/4 but less effectively

Protein Function :
Binds directly to activin and functions as an activin antagonist which plays a role in neural induction. The short isoform is a more potent inhibitor of activin than the long isoform. Specific inhibito...[+]
