Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 17 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Predicted to have follicle-stimulating hormone activity. Predicted to be involved in positive regulation of steroid biosynthetic process and thyroid hormone generation. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space and follicle-stimulating hormone complex. Is expressed in adenohypophyseal placode; gill; hypophysis; and pleuroperitoneal region. Orthologous to human CGA (glycoprotein hormones, alpha polypeptide).
