Summary: (from NCBI-Entrez) ..[read more]The protein encoded by this gene belongs to family 1 of G-protein coupled receptors. It is the receptor for follicle stimulating hormone and functions in gonad development. Mutations in this gene cause ovarian dysgenesis type 1, and also ovarian hyperstim
The specific beta subunit of FSH forms a functional heterodimer with the common alpha subunit and activates FSH receptor for folliculogenesis.
