Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), is one member of the pituitary glycoprotein hormone family, consisting of an alpha subunit and beta subunit (FSH-beta). FSH is synthesized and secreted by the gonadotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland, and regulates the development and growth, including pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes.FSH plays a role of stimulation of graafian follicles of the ovary and assistance of subsequent maturation and the secretion of estradiol. It also stimulates the epithelium of the seminiferous tubules and partially responsible to spermatogenesis.
