Gene: CGA (glycoprotein hormones, alpha polypeptide) Homo sapiens
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
