The existence of high-affinity and low-capacity specific binding sites for luteinizing hormone (LH)/human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) has been reported in porcine, rabbit and rat uteri. We have identified hCG binding sites in the human endometrium collected from 35-42-year-old ovulatory and anovulatory women. The binding characteristics of hCG to endometrial tissue preparations from ovulatory and anovulatory women showed saturability with high affinity and low capacity.
