Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a highly heterogeneous glycoprotein that plays a central role in mammalian reproduction. FSH is necessary for reproductive activities of the gonadal tissues, maturation of the gonads at puberty and for gamete production. FSH is essential for folliculogenesis in the female and spermatogenesis in the male. The activity of FSH is regulated by the levels of the reproductive hormones through a negative feedback system. FSH is secreted by the basophil cells of the pituitary gland controlled by the gonadotropin-releasing hormone. High levels of FSH are observed after menopause and in premature ovarian failure. Polycystic ovarian disease has also been associated with abnormal FSH levels. High levels of FSH have been observed in renal failure, cirrhosis and hyperthyroidism. In men, elevated FSH concentrations have been found in Kleinfelter syndrome, testicular failure, and in azospermic and oligospermic individuals.
