|Other Names||Follitropin subunit beta, Follicle-stimulating hormone beta subunit, FSH-B, FSH-beta, Follitropin beta chain, FSHB|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13591c was selected from the Center region of FSHB/FSH. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Together with the alpha chain CGA constitutes follitropin, the follicle-stimulating hormone, and provides its biological specificity to the hormone heterodimer. Binds FSHR, a G protein-coupled receptor, on target cells to activate downstream signaling pathways (PubMed:2494176, PubMed:24692546). Follitropin is involved in follicle development and spermatogenesis in reproductive organs (PubMed:407105, PubMed:8220432).|
|Cellular Location||Secreted. Note=Efficient secretion requires dimerization with CGA|

The pituitary glycoprotein hormone family includesfollicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, chorionicgonadotropin, and thyroid-stimulating hormone. All of theseglycoproteins consist of an identical alpha subunit and ahormone-specific beta subunit. This gene encodes the beta subunitof follicle-stimulating hormone. In conjunction with luteinizinghormone, follicle-stimulating hormone induces egg and spermproduction. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variantsencoding the same protein.
