Follistatin is a single-chain gonadal protein thatspecifically inhibits follicle-stimulating hormone release. Thesingle FST gene encodes two isoforms, FST317 and FST344 containing317 and 344 amino acids respectively, resulting from alternativesplicing of the precursor mRNA. In a study in which 37 candidategenes were tested for linkage and association with polycystic ovarysyndrome (PCOS) or hyperandrogenemia in 150 families, evidence wasfound for linkage between PCOS and follistatin.
