Annotation
coord with THYROTROPIN; FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE; LUTEINIZING HORMONE; or CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN if particularly discussed
Scope Note
The alpha chain of pituitary glycoprotein hormones (THYROTROPIN; FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE; LUTEINIZING HORMONE) and the placental CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Within a species, the alpha subunits of these four hormones are identical; the distinct functional characteristics of these glycoprotein hormones are determined by the unique beta subunits. Both subunits, the non-covalently bound heterodimers, are required for full biologic activity.
