Gene Symbol CGB
Gene Full Name chorionic gonadotropin, beta polypeptide
Background Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced by placenta after conception. hCG is comprised of a α subunit with 92 amino acids and a β subunit with 245 amino acids. The α subunit is identical to that of LH (Luteinizing hormone), FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) and TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone). hCG sustains corpus luteum, stimulats progesterone secretion, hence is critical to early foetus development. It has also been reported that hCG plays a role in the development of foetus’s tolerance to maternal immunity. hCG is the most sensitive biomarker for pregnancy.
Function Stimulates the ovaries to synthesize the steroids that are essential for the maintenance of pregnancy. [UniProt]
