Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta, TGF-β) this is a superfamily signaling pathway with many different roles during development. Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is also a member of the Transforming Growth Factor-β family of secreted signaling proteins.

The TGF precursor protein has three distinct regions:
- signal peptide - targets it to the endoplasmic reticulum and secretion
- propeptide - or the latency associated peptide
- mature peptide - cleaved from the precursor protein and is actively involved in signalling
- cleaved by Furin - a convertase
- cleaved at a dibasic arginine-X-X-arginine (RXXR) site
Expressed at the fetal-maternal interface and implicated in the promotion of implantation and post-implantation development.
- active peptide forms a hetero- or homodimer
- binds to a specific TGF-β Type II receptor
- Type II receptor then recruits a TGF-β Type I receptor
- phosphorylates it via its serine/threonine kinase domain
- phosphorylated Type I receptors then phosphorylate receptor-associated Smad proteins (R-Smads), including Smad1/5 and Smad2/3
- Type II receptor - MlTgfRII
- Type I receptors - MlTgfRIa, MlTgfRIb, and MlTgfRIc
- R-Smad proteins are composed of two main functional domains
- Mad-homology domains 1 and 2 (MH1 and MH2)
- Smad1/5 - associated with BMP-like signalling.
- Smad2/3 - associated with TGF-β-like signaling.
Mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 5 (SMAD5) is a transcriptional modulator activated by BMP (bone morphogenetic proteins) type 1 receptor kinase.
Bone morphogenetic protein 15
BMP15 evolution among family members
Growth Differentiation Factor 1
Growth Differentiation Factor 9 (GDF1) in involved in early left-right patterning. Also expressed in the nervous systemin late-stage embryos.
Growth Differentiation Factor 9
Growth Differentiation Factor 9 (GDF9) and bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15) are both members of the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily. They have both been identified as growth factors required oocyte to granulosa cell signaling for ovarian follicle development (folliculogenesis).
A recent study in pig has shown that oocyte-derived BMP15 but not GDF9 is required for down-regulation of connexin43 expression leading to a decrease in intercellular gap junction communication in granulosa cells.
