The process whereby a signal is secreted or discharged into the extracellular medium from a cellular source. The regulated release of activin, a nonsteroidal regulator composed of two covalently linked beta subunits, which is synthesized in the pituitary gland and gonads and stimulates the secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone. Any process that activates or increases the frequency, rate or extent of the regulated release of activin from a cell or group of cells. The controlled release of a substance by a cell. Any process that stops, prevents or reduces the frequency, rate or extent of the regulated release of activin from a cell or group of cells. The directed movement of hormones into, out of, within or between cells by means of some external agent such as a transporter or pore. Any process that modulates the frequency, rate or extent of the regulated release of activin from a cell or group of cells.
