  • Function

    Receptor for lutropin-choriogonadotropic hormone. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase.
  • Tissue specificity

    Gonadal and thyroid cells.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in LHCGR are a cause of familial male precocious puberty (FMPP) [MIM:176410]; also known as testotoxicosis. In FMPP the receptor is constitutively activated.
    Defects in LHCGR are the cause of luteinizing hormone resistance (LHR) [MIM:238320]; also known as Leydig cell hypoplasia in males. LHR is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by unresponsiveness to luteinizing hormone, defective sexual development in males, and defective follicular development and ovulation, amenorrhea and infertility in females. Two forms of the disorder have been defined in males. Type 1 is a severe form characterized by complete 46,XY male pseudohermaphroditism, low testosterone and high luteinizing hormone levels, total lack of responsiveness to luteinizing and chorionic gonadotropin hormones, lack of breast development, and absent development of secondary male sex characteristics. Type 2, a milder form, displays a broader range of phenotypic expression ranging from micropenis to severe hypospadias.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. FSH/LSH/TSH subfamily.
    Contains 6 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
    Contains 1 LRRNT domain.

Thank you for contacting us.

This product is tested for rat and Immunohistochemistry in Paraffin sections. We do generally recommend using a heat mediated antigen retrieval step, such as with citrate buffer. This antibody is against Hcg receptor, which is expressed on the cell membrane.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

We do not generate this antibody in-house and the supplying laboratory considers the immunogen sequence to be proprietary. All we know is that the immunogen is A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the N-terminal of human LHCGR, different from the relative rat sequence by two amino acids, mouse sequence by three amino acids.

If you want to know if this antibody will work in a different species, let me know and I will ask the lab to BLAST the immunogen against that species to estimate the homology.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
