The FSH receptor (FSHR) is a member of the super-family of G-protein-coupled receptors; it was reported to be expressed exclusively on granulosa cells of the ovary in females and on sertoli cells of the testis in males, which mediate FSH signal transduction through the cAMP pathway (Griswold et al., 1995; Simoni et al., 1997).
