|SMART accession number:||SM00274
||Follistatin-N-terminal domain-like, EGF-like. Region distinct from the kazal-like sequence|
|Interpro abstract (IPR003645):
||This EGF-like domain resembles the follistatin-N-terminal domain, and is distinct from the kazal-like sequence. Follistatin binds to activin and is a specific inhibotor of the biosynthesis and secretion of pituitary follicle stimulating hormone. This domain is also found in prespore vesicle protein and agrin.
There are 7259 FOLN domains in 1656 proteins in SMART's nrdb database.
