Follistatin (FST) is a member of the tissue growth factor β family and is a secreted glycoprotein that antagonizes many members of the family, including activin A, growth differentiation factor11 , and myostatin. It binds activin A with high affinity and whose expression can be induced by activin A and several other pro-inflammatory cytokines. Activin A-follistatin complexes are biologically inactive and bind to cell surface heparan sulphate-containing proteoglycans for internalisation and degradation. It has also been found to play a significant role in the management of skeletal muscle size and mass. It also has important roles in early embryonic development, differentiation of ovarian granulosa cells, liver fibrosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Myostatin, follistatin and activin type II receptors are highly expressed in adenomyosis.
Follistatin Attenuates Myocardial Fibrosis in Diabetic Cardiomyopathy via the TGF-β-Smad3 Pathway.
