Possible existence of luteinizing hormone/chorionic gonadotropin receptors in human corpora lutea during early pregnancy.

In order to evaluate the possible existence of receptors for luteinizing hormone (LH)/chorionic gonadotropin (CG) in human corpora lutea of pregnancy, the specific binding of [125I]hLH to luteal pellets of 6-7 weeks' gestation and the effect of neuraminidase pretreatment on [125I]hLH binding were investigated. A relatively low capacity of hLH binding to… CONTINUE READING
