hCG - Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Protein (OPPA01018)

Datasheets/ManualsPrintable datasheet for OPPA01018
Product Info
Product FormatLyophilized with no additives.
Physical Appearance: Sterile filtered white powder.
Additional InformationContaminants: Free of HbsAg and antibodies to HIV and HCV.
Reconstitution and StorageIt is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Human Chorionic Gonadotropin in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 ug/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized hCG although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CG-beta should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
PurificationThe hCG is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Biological ActivityThe activity was found to be 5209 IU/mg.
SourceUrine of pregnant women
DescriptionHuman Chorionic Gonadotropin is produced from a sterile preparation of placental glucoprotein urine of pregnant women. The hCG consists of 237 amino acids, a chain-92 amino acids and b chain-145 amino acids.
Gene SymbolhCG
Alias SymbolsChorionic gonadotropin, hCG, CG.
Protein NameChoriogonadotropin subunit beta
Description of TargetHuman chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a peptide hormone produced in pregnancy, that is made by the embryosoon after conception and later by the syncytiotrophoblast(part of the placenta). Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteumof the ovaryand thereby maintain progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans. hCG may have additional functions, for instance it is thought that it affects the immune tolerance of the pregnancy. Early pregnancy testing generally is based on the detection or measurement of hCG.
