|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]|
