Chemical Glycoprotein Hormones, alpha Subunit

Name Glycoprotein Hormones, alpha Subunit
Equivalent Terms ASGPH | Chorionic Gonadotropin, alpha | Chorionic Gonadotropin, alpha Subunit | Common alpha Subunit Glycoprotein Hormones | Follicle Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit | Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit | FSH alpha | FSH-alpha | FSH, alpha Subunit | Glycoprotein Hormones, alpha Chain | Glycoprotein Hormones, alpha Polypeptide | LH, alpha Subunit | Luteinizing Hormone, alpha Subunit | Lutotropin alpha | Lutotropin-alpha | Pituitary Glycoprotein Hormone, alpha Subunit | Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit | Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit | Thyrotropin alpha Subunit | TSH alpha | TSH-alpha | TSH, alpha Subunit
Definition 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.
