Follistatin 344 is an activin-binding protein that is made up of 323 amino acids. This peptide works to help encourage muscle repair and it also helps to improve motor function. If there is any deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme acid α-glucosidase (or GAA), it can lead to a massive accumulation of glycogen in both the lysosomes and autophagosomes of striated and smooth muscle. This will result in skeletal muscle weakness as well as cardiorespiratory failure. Follistatin 344 is an effective Myostatin inhibitor. This peptide results in material muscle growth. This is a single-chain gonadal protein that specifically inhibits follicle-stimulating hormone release. As a single FST gene, it encodes two isoforms. These two isoforms are FST317 and FST344, containing 317 and 344 amino acids respectively. This results in alternative splicing of the precursor mRNA. A study was run with 37 candidate genes. The genes were tested for linkage and association with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or hyperandrogenemia in 150 families. In the study, evidence was found for linkage between PCOS and follistatin. As previously stated, Follistatin binds directly to activin. This means that it functions as an activin antagonist. Follistatin is a specific inhibitor of the biosynthesis and secretion of pituitary follicle stimulating hormones or fsh.
