Chemical Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Human

Name Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Human
Equivalent Terms Anthrogon | FSH, Human | FSH, human (follicle stimulating hormone) | hFSH | Human Follicle Stimulating Hormone | Human FSH
Definition A major gonadotropin secreted by the human adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Follicle-stimulating hormone stimulates GAMETOGENESIS and the supporting cells such as the ovarian GRANULOSA CELLS, the testicular SERTOLI CELLS, and the LEYDIG CELLS. FSH consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. The alpha subunit is common in the three human pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
