Abstract: TGF-β family ligands are translated as prepropeptide precursors and are processed into mature C-terminal dimers that signal by assembling a serine/threonine kinase receptor complex containing type I and II components. Many TGF-β ligands are secreted in a latent form that cannot bind their receptor, due to the pro-region remaining associated with the mature ligand in a noncovalent complex after proteolytic cleavage. Here we show that anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), a TGF-β family ligand involved in reproductive d…
