  • Product overview

    ab108678 Follicle Stimulating Hormone Human ELISA Kit is a immunoenzymatic colorimetric method for quantitative determination of Follicle Stimulating Hormone in serum.

    Follicle Stimulating hormone (FSH) is a glycoprotein consisting of two subunits with an approximate molecular mass of 35,500 daltons. The alpha-subunit is similar to other pituitary hormones [luteinizing stimulating hormone (LH), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)] while the beta-subunit is unique. The beta-subunit confers the biological activity to the molecule. Stimulation by gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) causes release of FSH, as well as LH, from the pituitary and is transported by the blood to their sites of action, the testes or ovary. In men, FSH acts on the Sertoli cells of the testis, stimulating the synthesis of inhibin, which appears to specifically inhibit further FSH secretion, and androgen-binding protein. Thus, it indirectly supports spermatogenesis. In women, FSH acts on the granulosa cells of the ovary, stimulating steroidogensis. All ovulatory menstrual cycles have a characteristic pattern of FSH, as well as LH, secretion.

Thank you for contacting us, and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

The monoclonal antibody used for capture binds all the FSH molecule. The cross reactivity is 1% against the alfa chain (generic for several proteic hormones as LH, bHCG, TSH ) and 68% against the beta chain (specific for FSH). The monoclonal antibody for detection binds to the alfa subunit (generic) and cross-reactivity is 5% against the FSH beta chain.

I hope this information is helpful. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you very much for your inquiry.

We do have no ELISA kit against LH, FSH or Progesterone which are tested against the rat proteins. We do have however such kits tested against the human protein, for which we have however not yet tested whether they can work with the rat protein.

I am inquiring with the laboratory whether we have any anti rat ELISA kits for these proteins which we could put in ourcatalogue and I will get back to you as soon as I know more.

Thank you for your patience. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
