FSHR follicle stimulating hormone receptor

Gene ID: 2492, updated on 8-Dec-2022
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: LGR1; ODG1; FSHR1; FSHRO


The protein encoded by this gene belongs to family 1 of G-protein coupled receptors. It is the receptor for follicle stimulating hormone and functions in gonad development. Mutations in this gene cause ovarian dysgenesis type 1, and also ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
