Chemical Follicle Stimulating Hormone, beta Subunit

Name Follicle Stimulating Hormone, beta Subunit
Equivalent Terms Follicle Stimulating Hormone, beta Polypeptide Chain | Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, beta Subunit | FSH beta | FSH-beta | FSH, beta Chain | FSH, beta Subunit
Definition The beta subunit of follicle stimulating hormone. It is a 15-kDa glycopolypeptide. Full biological activity of FSH requires the non-covalently bound heterodimers of an alpha and a beta subunit. Mutation of the FSHB gene causes delayed puberty, or infertility.
