Description

Summary

Human chorionic gonadotropin, also known as hCG, is a naturally-occurring hormone which is produced by the placenta [1]. The hCG hormone is composed of two units, which are known as the alpha and beta subunits [2] Moreover, hCG refers to four independent molecules in which each shows different function, and each being produced by separate cells [3].

How it works

hCG is known to have luteinizing hormone-like activity [4]. Luteinizing hormone function in females is based on the initiation of ovulation; in males, this hormone triggers Leydig cells to produce testosterone. In addition, hCG has a half-life, or lasts for,  around 37 hours [3].
