In differentiating Sertoli cells of the testis, the AMH gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield AMH protein (De Santa Barbara et al. 1998, Rahmoun et al. 2017, and inferred from mouse homologs). SOX9, NR5A1 (SF1), and GATA4 bind the promoter of the AMH gene and activate transcription (De Santa Barbara et al. 1998, Rahmoun et al. 2017, and inferred from mouse homologs). AMH is secreted and acts via the AMHR receptor to suppress formation of the Mullerian duct.
