Luteinizing Hormone is a member of the glycoprotein hormone family. Glycoprotein hormones are heterodimers consisting of a common alpha subunit and an unique beta subunit which confers biological specificity. LH is expressed in the pituitary gland and promotes spermatogenesis and ovulation by stimulating the testes and ovaries to synthesize steroids. Mutations in the Luteinizing Hormone (LHB) gene are associated with hypogonadism which is characterized by infertility and pseudohermaphroditism.
