GtoPdb Ligand ID: 4880

Synonyms: GDF-9B | growth/differentiation factor 9B
Comment: The BMP-15 gene is X-linked and expressed in oocytes. BMP-15 protein appears to be involved in early ovarian folliculogenesis [1-3], acting in synergy with growth/differentiation factor-9 [4]. BMP-15 is a selective modulator of FSH action [3]. The active peptide is a disulphide bond-linked homodimer.
