The observed molecular weight of alpha-hCG is approximately 20-22 kD. The molecular weight is higher than the predicted molecular weight due to post translational modification.
MIH9805 was 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 includes 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. Alpha subunit, which is common to all the members of the family within a given species, with distinct but homologous beta subunits which confer hormone specificities.
