Gene: Lhb (luteinizing hormone beta) Mus musculus
Symbol: Lhb
Name: luteinizing hormone beta
Description: Predicted to contribute to hormone activity. Involved in luteinizing hormone signaling pathway involved in ovarian follicle development. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; and heart. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 23 with or without anosmia. Orthologous to several human genes including LHB (luteinizing hormone subunit beta); PARTICIPATES IN luteinizing hormone signaling pathway; gonadotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate; 17beta-hydroxy-17-methylestra-4,9,11-trien-3-one.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
