Human beta Subunit Chorionic Gonadotropin Summary

Description: The beta subunit of human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Its structure is similar to the beta subunit of LUTEINIZING HORMONE, except for the additional 30 amino acids at the carboxy end with the associated carbohydrate residues. HCG-beta is used as a diagnostic marker for early detection of pregnancy, spontaneous abortion (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS); ECTOPIC PREGNANCY; HYDATIDIFORM MOLE; CHORIOCARCINOMA; or DOWN SYNDROME.

Also Known As: Chorionic Gonadotropin, beta Subunit, Human; Chorionic Gonadotropin, beta Chain, Human; Chorionic Gonadotropin, beta Polypeptide, Human; HCG, beta Subunit; HCG beta Show All >>
