HCG is a glycoprotein, which is secreted in large quantities by normal trophoblasts. It is present only in trace amounts in nonpregnant urine and sera but rises sharply during pregnancy. HCG is composed of two non-identical, non-covalently linked polypeptide chains designated as the ? and ? subunits. The ? subunit is identical to that of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH). This MAb reacts with a protein of ~13kDa, identified as ? sub-unit of HCG.
