Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), also called follitropin, belongs to the family of glycoprotein hormones that also includes luteininizing hormone and thyroid-stimulating hormone. These hormones are secreted by the pituitary and exist as heterodimers, consisting of a common α subunit and a homologous but distinct β subunit. While the α subunit of FSH is involved in the binding of FSH to the receptor (follicle-stimulating hormone receptor, also known as FSHR), the β subunit stabilizes this interaction. This heterodimer regulates a variety of processes, including secretion, posttranslational modification and signal transduction. Both FSH and FSHR are localized to Sertoli cells.

How much sample do you recommend loading on the gel for Western blot detection using FSHα (ME.111): sc-57149?
Asked by: Cweed
We recommend loading 40–60 µg whole cell lysate, 10–20 µg nuclear extract, 5-10 µg transfected lysate, or 10–20 ng purified protein per lane. A link to our complete Western blotting protocol is provided here for your reference.

Does the antibody work to alpha chain only? When performing western blot analysis.
Asked by: Quirino
Thank you for your question. Yes, this is a mouse monoclonal IgG1, FSH Antibody (ME.111): sc-57149, that is recommended for detection of human FSH alpha in ELISA and WB.
