Chorionic Somatomammotropin Hormone (CSH1) belongs to the Somatotropin/Prolactin family. It is located at the growth hormone locus on chromosome 17. It is produced by cells in the syncytiotrophoblast layer of the placenta only during pregnancy. Although CSH1 does not interact with GHR but only activates PRLR through zinc-induced dimerization. It is expressed mainly in the placenta and utilizes multiple transcription initiation sites. CSH1 plays an important role in stimulating lactation, growth control and metabolism.
Placental Lactogen/CSH1 Recombinant Protein (RPES2043)
Recombinant Human Chorionic Somatomammotropin Hormone is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Val27-Phe217 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
