UniProt Comment
  • P01215: Heterodimer of a common alpha chain and a unique beta chain which confers biological specificity to thyrotropin, lutropin, follitropin and gonadotropin.
  • P01233: Stimulates the ovaries to synthesize the steroids that are essential for the maintenance of pregnancy.
  • Glycoprotein hormones

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs753307) and 11 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
