Complete amino acid sequence of human seminal plasma beta-inhibin. Prediction of post Gln-Arg cleavage as a maturation site.

The complete sequence of a 94 amino acid human seminal plasma polypeptide exhibiting inhibin-like activity is presented. This molecule, called beta-inhibin, selectively and specifically suppresses the release of pituitary FSH in vivo as well as in vitro. It does not affect the secretion of LH. Such a novel acidic protein contains a very basic C-terminal segment which is easily cleaved by mild tryptic digestion. It is predicted that the FSH inhibiting activity may reside within this region of the molecule. This would imply a post Gln-Arg cleavage to release the basic C-terminal active moiety.[1]
