Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against native CGB.
Native purified human CGB.
This antibody reacts with beta-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Following cross-reactivity (%) was determined by classic double-antibody RIA using unlabelled hormones: beta-hCG (73), alpha-hCG (1.6), hLH (1.2), hFSH (< 0.5), hTSH (< 0.5).
The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
In PBS, pH 7.4 (0.09% sodium azide)
Store at 4°C. Do not freeze. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.
This gene is a member of the glycoprotein hormone beta chain family and encodes the beta 3 subunit of chorionic gonadotropin (CG). Glycoprotein hormones are heterodimers consisting of a common alpha subunit and an unique beta subunit which confers biological specificity. CG is produced by the trophoblastic cells of the placenta and stimulates the ovaries to synthesize the steroids that are essential for the maintenance of pregnancy. The beta subunit of CG is encoded by 6 genes which are arranged in tandem and inverted pairs on chromosome 19q13.3 and contiguous with the luteinizing hormone beta subunit gene. [provided by RefSeq
