- Product overview
ab108636 Chorionic Gonadotropin Human ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) concentration in human serum.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone normally produced by the placenta during pregnancy. The hCG molecule consists of two combined, dissimilar subunits designated alpha and beta. The beta subunit, with a molecular weight of approximately 30,000 daltons, confers biological and immunological specificity to the entire hCG molecule by virtue of its unique amino acid sequence and content. The alpha subunit, with a molecular weight of approximately 18,000 daltons, is essentially identical to the alpha subunit of the pituitary glycoprotein hormones: luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
The appearance of hCG in urine or serum soon after conception and its rapid rise in concentration makes it an ideal indicator for the detection and confirmation of pregnancy. However, elevated hCG levels are also frequently associated with trophoblastic and non-trophoblastic neoplasmas; these conditions should be considered before a diagnosis of pregnancy can be made.
