Activin A is a TGF-beta family member that exert a wide array of biological activities including regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation, apoptosis and metabolism. Activin A is one of four beta-subunit proteins that exist as homodimers or heterodimers of the beta-subunit isoforms. Activin protein complexes are closely related to inhibins, which consist of a beta-subunit paired with an alpha-subunit. Activins and inhibins are expressed by various cell types and mediate opposing biological effects. Human/Murine/Rat Activin A is a disulfide-linked homodimer consisting of two betaA chains.
