Inhibin, alpha

This gene encodes the alpha subunit of inhibins A and B protein complexes. These complexes negatively regulate follicle stimulating hormone secretion from the pituitary gland. Inhibins have also been implicated in regulating numerous cellular processes including cell proliferation, apoptosis, immune response and hormone secretion.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010] (from NCBI)

Computational approach to understanding the mechanism of action of isoniazid, an anti-TB drug.
Harinath et al., India. In Int J Mycobacteriol, 2014
This INH intermediate in the presence of NADH forms INH-NAD adduct which inhibits inhA (2-trans-enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase) of MTB, thus blocking the synthesis of mycolic acid, a major lipid of the mycobacterial cell wall.
Gene variation and premature ovarian failure: a meta-analysis.
Wu et al., Nanjing, China. In Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol, 2014
Five genes were selected for analysis, including 10 common gene polymorphisms [BMP15 (-9C>G, 788insTCT and 852C>T), ESR1 (-351A>G and -397C>T), FMR1 CGG repeat, FSHR (919A>G and 2039A>G), INHA (-16C>T and -124A>G)] and two mutations (BMP15 538G>A and INHA 769G>A).
Resistance to Isoniazid and Ethionamide in Mycobacterium tuberculosis: Genes, Mutations, and Causalities.
Jacobs et al., In Microbiol Spectr, 2014
The resulting active species reacts with NAD+ to form an INH-NAD or ETH-NAD adduct, which inhibits the enoyl ACP reductase InhA, leading to mycolic acid biosynthesis inhibition and mycobacterial cell death.
Use of rapid molecular test for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis detection among relapse cases in Cote d'Ivoire.
Dosso et al., Abidjan, Ivory Coast. In Int J Mycobacteriol, 2014
Thirteen mutations conferring a resistance to Isoniazid were observed of which 9 in katG gene and 4 in katG and promoter region of inhA gene.
Drug resistance-related mutations in multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from diverse geographical regions.
Hoffner et al., Tegucigalpa, Honduras. In Int J Mycobacteriol, 2012
METHODS: In order to analyse the geographical distribution and frequency of mutations conferring resistance to rifampicin, isoniazid and fluoroquinolones, the researchers investigated the presence of mutations in the rpoB gene, the katG gene, the mabA-inhA promoter region and the gyrA gene in clinical isolates of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) from Belarus, China, Iran/Iraq, Honduras, Romania and Uganda.

Resistance to isoniazid can be caused either by mutations in the katG-encoded catalase-peroxidase, the enzyme responsible for drug activation, or by the molecular target, the inhA-encoded long chain enoyl-ACP reductase.
