  • Product overview

    ab108651 Luteinizing Hormone Human ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of luteinizing hormone (LH) concentration in human serum.

    Luteinizing hormone (LH) is produced in both men and women from the anterior pituitary gland in response to luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH or Gn-RH), which is released by the hypothalamus. LH, also called interstitial cell-stimulating hormone (ICSH) in men, is a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of approximately 30,000 daltons. It is composed of two noncovalently associated dissimilar amino acid chains, alpha and beta. The alpha chain is similar to that found in human thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). The differences between these hormones lie in the amino acid composition of their beta subunits, which account for their immunological differentiation.

    The basal secretion of LH in men is episodic and has the primary function of stimulating the interstitial cells (Leydig cells) to produce testosterone. The variation in LH concentrations in women is subject to the complex ovulatory cycle of healthy menstruating women, and depends on a sequence of hormonal events along the gonado-hypothalamic-pituitary axis.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Promotes spermatogenesis and ovulation by stimulating the testes and ovaries to synthesize steroids.
  • Tissue specificity

    Pituitary gland.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in LHB are a cause of hypogonadism LHB-related (HGON-LHB) [MIM:152780]. Hypogonadism is characterized by infertility and pseudohermaphroditism.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the glycoprotein hormones subunit beta family.

Customer reviews and Q&As


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.
