Summaries for AMH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AMH Gene

  • Anti-Mullerian hormone is a member of the transforming growth factor-beta gene family which mediates male sexual differentiation. Anti-Mullerian hormone causes the regression of Mullerian ducts which would otherwise differentiate into the uterus and fallopian tubes. Some mutations in the anti-Mullerian hormone result in persistent Mullerian duct syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for AMH Gene

AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AMH include persistent mullerian duct syndrome and intermediate coronary syndrome. Among its related pathways are Hippo signaling pathway and Spinal Cord Injury. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and hormone activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AMH Gene

  • This glycoprotein, produced by the Sertoli cells of the testis, causes regression of the Muellerian duct. It is also able to inhibit the growth of tumors derived from tissues of Muellerian duct origin
