 Synonyms & Historicals
Peptide Hormones .
Hormones, Polypeptide .
Hormones, Peptide .
Polypeptide Hormones .
Hormones synthesized from amino acids. They are distinguished from INTERCELLULAR SIGNALING PEPTIDES AND PROTEINS in that their actions are systemic. .
Pancreatic Polypeptide .
Pancreatic Polypeptide (PP) .
Pancreatic Polypeptide Hormone .
Pancreatic Prohormone .
A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice. .
Peptides .
Polypeptides .
Members of the class of compounds composed of AMINO ACIDS joined together by peptide bonds between adjacent amino acids into linear, branched or cyclical structures. OLIGOPEPTIDES are composed of approximately 2-12 amino acids. Polypeptides are composed of approximately 13 or more amino acids. PROTEINS are linear polypeptides that are normally synthesized on RIBOSOMES. .

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit .
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit .
Luteinizing Hormone, alpha Subunit .
Pituitary Glycoprotein Hormone, alpha Subunit .
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone, alpha Subunit .
Thyrotropin alpha Subunit .
FSH, alpha Subunit .
LH, alpha Subunit .
TSH, alpha Subunit .
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, alpha Subunit .
HCG, alpha Subunit .
The alpha chain of pituitary glycoprotein hormones (THYROTROPIN; FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE; LUTEINIZING HORMONE) and the placental CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Within a species, the alpha subunits of these four hormones are identical; the distinct functional characteristics of these glycoprotein hormones are determined by the unique beta subunits. Both subunits, the non-covalently bound heterodimers, are required for full biologic activity. .
Hormones .
Hormone .
Hormone Receptor Agonists .
Agonists, Hormone Receptor .
Receptor Agonists, Hormone .
Hormones, Synthetic .
Hormone Analogs .
Chemical substances having a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ or organs. The term was originally applied to substances secreted by various ENDOCRINE GLANDS and transported in the bloodstream to the target organs. It is sometimes extended to include those substances that are not produced by the endocrine glands but that have similar effects. .
Luteinizing Hormone, beta Subunit .
LH-beta .
Luteinizing Hormone, beta Chain .
Luteinizing Hormone, beta Polypeptide Chain .
Lutropin-beta .
LH beta .
Lutropin beta .
ICSH, beta Subunit .
LH, beta Subunit .
Lutropin, beta Subunit .
The beta subunit of luteinizing hormone. It is a 15-kDa glycopolypeptide with structure similar to the beta subunit of the placental chorionic gonadatropin (CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, BETA SUBUNIT, HUMAN) except for the additional 31 amino acids at the C-terminal of CG-beta. Full biological activity of LH requires the non-covalently bound heterodimers of an alpha and a beta subunit. Mutation of the LHB gene causes HYPOGONADISM and infertility. .
