Anti-Mllerian hormone (AMH), also known as Mllerian-inhibiting hormone (MIH), is a glycoprotein hormone structurally related to inhibin and activin from the transforming growth factor beta superfamily, whose key roles are in growth differentiation and folliculogenesis.
- In humans, the gene for AMH is AMH, on chromosome 19p13.3,
- while the gene AMHR2 codes for its receptor on chromosome 12.
- AMH can be used for selection of females in multi-ovulatory embryo transfer programs by predicting the number of antral follicles developed to ovulation.
- AMH can also be used as a marker for ovarian dysfunction, such as in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
