Gene: Lhb (luteinizing hormone beta polypeptide) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Lhb
Name: luteinizing hormone beta polypeptide
Description: Predicted to contribute to hormone activity; predicted to be involved in hormone-mediated signaling pathway and luteinizing hormone signaling pathway involved in ovarian follicle development; predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and extracellular space; orthologous to several human genes including LHB (luteinizing hormone beta polypeptide); PARTICIPATES IN luteinizing hormone signaling pathway; gonadotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (R)-lipoic acid; (R)-noradrenaline.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LH-B; LSH-B; LSH-beta; luteinizing hormone (lutropin) subunit beta; luteinizing hormone beta; luteinizing hormone beta subunit; luteinizing hormone subunit beta; lutropin beta chain; lutropin subunit beta
