Description:

Alpha HCG is the shared alpha chain of the active heterodimeric glycoprotein hormones thyrotropin/thyroid stimulating hormone/TSH, lutropin/luteinizing hormone/LH, follitropin/follicle stimulating hormone/FSH and choriogonadotropin/CG. These hormones bind specific receptors on target cells that in turn activate downstream signaling pathways.

Reconstitution:

Gonadotropins are extremely labile in solution. Reconstitute immediately prior to use, at 1.0 mg/ml, in a physiologic solution such as PBS or TBS. Include a carrier protein such as 1% BSA. If your application precludes the use of a carrier protein, reconstitute product at 5 - 10 mg/ml. Avoid extreme high and low pH.

Storage/Stability:

Store as supplied for up to 1 year at -20°C to -80°C. It is recommended to use the product immediately following reconstitution. If storage is necessary following reconstitution, prepare single-use aliquots and immediately store at -80°C for up to 3 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
