Target

  • FunctionSeems to play a role in testicular function. May be a trophic hormone with a role in testicular descent in fetal life. Is a ligand for LGR8 receptor.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in prenatal and postnatal Leydig cells. Found as well in the corpus luteum, trophoblast, fetal membranes and breast.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in INSL3 seems to be a cause of cryptorchidism (CRYPTO) [MIM:219050]; also known as impaired testicular descent. It is one of the most frequent congenital abnormalities in humans, involving 2-5% of male births. Cryptorchidism is associated with increased risk of infertility and testicular cancer. The frequency of INSL3 gene mutations as a cause of cryptorchidism is low.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the insulin family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
