Activin and follistatin were initially identified in the follicular fluid based on their effects on pituitary FSH secretion in the mid-1980s. It is now evident that activin, follistatin and activin receptors are widely expressed in many tissues where they function as autocrine/paracrine regulators of a variety of physiological processes including reproduction.
