MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer. This protein regulates ovarian function. Female mice that are homozygous null for this gene are sterile with impaired folliculogenesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
PHENOTYPE: Females homozygous for a targeted null mutation are sterile with a block in folliculogenesis. Mutant oocytes exhibit perinuclear organelle aggregation, unusual Golgi complexes, absence of cortical granules, and impaired granulosa cell connections. [provided by MGI curators]
