in·hib·in

(in-hib'in),
One of several proteins that participate in differentiation and growth. Two glycoproteins, inhibin A and inhibin B, are secreted by Sertoli cells in the testis and granulosa cells in the ovary, inhibiting FSH secretion by direct action on the pituitary.
[inhibit + -in]

inhibin

(ĭn-hĭb′ĭn)
n.
A peptide hormone secreted by the follicular cells of the ovary and the Sertoli cells of the testis that inhibits secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone from the anterior pituitary.

inhibin

[inhib′in]
a gonadal hormone that inhibits activity of the follicle-stimulating hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland.

inhibin

A hormone that inhibits secretion of the FOLLICLE-STIMULATING HORMONE (FSH) by the pituitary gland. It is produced by the Sertoli cells of the seminiferous tubules in the male and by the granulosa cells of the ovaries in females.

inhibin

a nonsteroid hormone originating in the seminiferous tubules and ovarian follicles and which regulates follicle-stimulating hormone secretion.

Concentrations of fructose, NAG, inhibin B and AMH were determined in the stored seminal plasma.
In the normozoospermic group, measurement of inhibin B and AMH in undiluted seminal plasma revealed values in excess of the maximum amount for the standard curve.
The range of inhibin B and AMH concentration in the seminal plasma were widely dispersed in the two groups of patients.
Changes in individual women's levels of FSH, LH, and inhibin B were significantly associated with depressive symptoms and with major depression.
Inhibin B is the hormone that can help measure a woman's potential to conceive spontaneously and also predict how well she may respond to fertility treatment.
Lower inhibin B levels are indicative of dysfunction in the seminiferous tubules," said Dr.
Blood was tested for inhibin B, FSH, luteinizing hormone, testosterone, and free testosterone.
BMI and skinfold thickness were negatively correlated with serum testosterone level, while inhibin B and FSH were negatively correlated with BMI.
However, girls aged 10 or 11 with blood lead levels of 5 [micro]g/dL or higher were 75% less likely than girls with blood lead under 1 [micro]g/dL to have levels of inhibin B greater than 35 pg/mL, a level typically deemed consistent with puberty by the limited research in this area.
Inhibin B is the major form of inhibin-activin family secreted by granulosa cell tumours.
Inhibin B (picograms per milliliter) and LH (milli-International units per milliliter) were measured in residual sera for 705 girls.
RESULTS: High Pb ([greater than or equal to] 5 [micro]g/dL) was inversely associated with inhibin B > 35 pg/mL [odds ratio (OR) = 0.
