  Glycoprotein hormones are made up of 2 non-co­ valently linked subunits a and B (1, 7). The a subunit is a 92 amino-acid peptide, produced by a single gene. It is virtually identical within the same species for the 4 pituitary glycoprotein hormones (8). The B subunits, produced by different genes, differ ac­ cording to the hormones (9, 10). FSH is a dimeric glycoprotein with an α protein subunit common to LH and thyroid stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland and human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) from the placenta. The α subunit is bound non-covalently to a β subunit unique to each hormone which together confer biological ://   Pituitary–testicular axis function, biological to immunological ratio and charge isoform distribution of pituitary LH in male rats with experimental diabetes General and Comparative Endocrinology, Vol. , No. 3 Glycoprotein Hormones: Some Aspects of Studies of Secondary and Tertiary Structure.

Several hormones stimulate distant endocrine glands to increase production of their own hormones. These stimulatory hormones anterior pituitary hormones are often called trophic or tropic the importance of these hormones in regulation of growth, development, lactation reproduction
