Gene: CGA (glycoprotein hormones, alpha polypeptide) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: CGA
Name: glycoprotein hormones, alpha polypeptide
Description: Exhibits follicle-stimulating hormone activity. Involved in G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of steroid biosynthetic process; and regulation of signaling receptor activity. Localizes to the extracellular space and follicle-stimulating hormone complex. Biomarker of Leydig cell tumor; breast cancer; and prostate carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: anterior pituitary glycoprotein hormones common subunit alpha; CG-ALPHA; choriogonadotropin alpha chain; chorionic gonadotrophin subunit alpha; chorionic gonadotropin, alpha polypeptide; follicle-stimulating hormone alpha chain; follicle-stimulating hormone alpha subunit; follitropin alpha chain; FSH-alpha; FSHA; glycoprotein hormones alpha chain; GPA1; GPHa; GPHA1; HCG; LHA; LSH-alpha; luteinizing hormone alpha chain; lutropin alpha chain; thyroid-stimulating hormone alpha chain; thyrotropin alpha chain; TSH-alpha; TSHA
