The observed molecular weight of alpha-hCG and beta-hCG are approximately 20-22 kD and 27-32 kD respectively.
The molecular weight is higher than the predicted molecular weight due to post translational modification.
Product MA514701 is a smaller package size of MIH9813 (formerly sold as a Seradyn product).
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a placental hormone that stimulates secretion of the pregnancy-sustaining steroid progesterone. hCG is a member of a family of glycoprotein hormones including pituitary hormones lutropin (luteinizing hormone;LH), follitropin (follicle-stimulating hormone; FSH) and thyrotropin (thyroid-stimulating hormone; TSH). Members of this family are all composed of disulfide-rich heterodimers with two dissimilar subunits namely alpha- and beta-subunits. The alpha subunit is common to all the members of the family within a given species. The beta subunits are distinct in each of the horomones and confer the receptor and biological specificity.
