Luteinizing hormone-secreting pituitary tumor: biosynthetic characterization and clinical studies.


Although gonadotropin-secreting pituitary adenomas are increasingly recognized, tumors secreting only LH are rare. Since gonadotropin production by pituitary adenomas may reflect imbalanced glycoprotein biosynthesis, we studied tumor LH and subunit biosynthesis and secretion in a patient with a LH- and alpha-subunit-producing pituitary tumor. Northern blot… (More)
