FSH Porcine (OOPA00171)

Catalog#: OOPA00171
Domestic: within 1 week delivery International: 1 week
This product is Genway GWB-BSP110
More Information
Product FormatLyophilizedwith no additives.
Physical Appearance: Sterile filtered white powder
Reconstitution and StorageIt is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized porcine FSH in sterile 18M-omega-cm H2O no less than 100 ug/mL, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized porcine FSH, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution, FSH porcine should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze/thaw cycles.

Description of TargetFollicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone synthesised and secreted by gonadotropes in the anterior pituitary gland. FSH and LH act synergistically in reproductionIn women, in the ovary FSH stimulates the growth of immature Graafian follicles to maturation. As the follicle grows it releases inhibin, which shuts off the FSH production. In men, FSH enhances the production of androgen-binding proteinby the Sertoli cells of the testes and is critical for spermatogenesis. In both males and females, FSH stimulates the maturation of germ cells. In females, FSH initiates follicular growth, specifically affecting granulosa cells. With the concomitant rise in inhibin B FSH levels then decline in the late follicular phase. This seems to be critical in selecting only the most advanced follicle to proceed to ovulation. At the end of the luteal phase, there is a slight rise in FSH that seems to be of importance to start the next ovulatory cycle. FSH Porcine is a glycoprotein produced from pituitaries of porcine.
