LP14651-1   Choriogonadotropin
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a peptide hormone produced in pregnancy, that is made by the embryo soon after conception and later by the syncytiotrophoblast (part of the placenta). Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintain progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans. hCG may have additional functions, including affecting the immune tolerance of the pregnancy. Early pregnancy testing generally is based on the detection or measurement of hCG. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
