The receptors for the trophic hormones luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and thyrotropin (TSH) play a central role in endocrinology. These receptors face the challenge to accommodate large heterodimeric glycoprotein ligands within their extracellular hormone-binding domain. Until recently, the mechanism of hormone binding and… (More)
