Summaries for INHBC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for INHBC Gene

  • This gene encodes the beta C chain of inhibin, a member of the TGF-beta superfamily. This subunit forms heterodimers with beta A and beta B subunits. Inhibins and activins, also members of the TGF-beta superfamily, are hormones with opposing actions and are involved in hypothalamic, pituitary, and gonadal hormone secretion, as well as growth and differentiation of various cell types.

GeneCards Summary for INHBC Gene

INHBC (Inhibin Beta C) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Peptide hormone metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and hormone activity. An important paralog of this gene is INHBB.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for INHBC Gene

  • Inhibins and activins inhibit and activate, respectively, the secretion of follitropin by the pituitary gland. Inhibins/activins are involved in regulating a number of diverse functions such as hypothalamic and pituitary hormone secretion, gonadal hormone secretion, germ cell development and maturation, erythroid differentiation, insulin secretion, nerve cell survival, embryonic axial development or bone growth, depending on their subunit composition. Inhibins appear to oppose the functions of activins.
