Brief description Inhibin A and B are essential factors in mammalian reproduction, negatively regulating pituitary production of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). Interestingly, declines in inhibin levels at menopause correlate with a rapid decrease in bone and muscle mass. We propose that inhibin A and B have important physiological roles in the stimulation of bone and muscle growth, and that inhibins could be utilised to treat postmenopausal complications, including osteoporosis and sarcopenia.
