Mechanism of FSH :
(1) FSH is secreted by anterior lobe of pituitary gland.
(2) FSH binds to its receptor to form FSH -receptor complex.
(3) FSH receptor complex generates second messenger cAMP
(4) cAMP brings biochemical responses.
(5) The biochemical chages lead to the physiological responses. Due to biochemical responses graafian follicle are matured and they secrete estrogen while in case of male it brings formation of sperms.
