Overview

  • Product nameAnti-FSH antibodySee all FSH primary antibodies ...
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to FSH
  • SpecificityThis antibody reacts with the 35 kD beta follicle stimulating hormone which, in females, is involved in maturation of ovarian follicles and estrogen secretion, and in males stimulates secretion of testosterone. This antibody reacts with FSH producing cells in the anterior pituitary.

Target

  • RelevanceFollicle stimulating hormone enables ovarian folliculogenesis to the antral follicle stage and is essential for Sertoli cell proliferation and maintenance of sperm quality in the testis. Members of the pituitary glycoprotein hormone family, of which FSH is one (see also luteinizing hormone, chorionic gonadotropin, and thyroid stimulating hormone), consist of a shared alpha chain and a beta chain encoded by a separate gene. The FSHB gene encodes the beta subunit of follicle stimulating hormone.

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab8746 will recognize the beta subunit in the instact FSH molecule. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.

I enquired with the originator of ab8746 regarding the problems that you were experiencing, and I regret to inform you that ab8746 does not work in immunoblotting, only in IHC. I have updated the datasheet and I apologize for the inconvenience that thi...
