FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a subunit of the dimeric activin and inhibin protein complexes. These complexes activate and inhibit, respectively, follicle stimulating hormone secretion from the pituitary gland. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit eyelid defects.

PHENOTYPE: Some homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit open eyes at birth and impaired maternal nuturing. Mutant females for one line exhibit extended gestation length, retarded mammary duct elongation and alveolar morphogenesis, and are unable to nurse their pups. [provided by MGI curators]
