OBJECTIVE An immunologically anomalous form of LH, due to two point mutations in codons 8 and 15 of the LH beta gene, has previously been described. LH status, i.e. the discrimination between wild-type (WT) and variant (V) LH, is usually determined by immunoassays, which can be unreliable at low serum concentrations of LH. A DNA hybridization assay was therefore developed to score the LH genotype in all subjects, independent of their serum LH concentrations. To evaluate the performance of the… CONTINUE READING
