Abstract Human chorionic somatomammotropin is the principal protein produced by the term placenta. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism in the pregnant woman hut its exact biological roles are still not clearly defined. Accurate measurement of immunoreactive‐HCS (1R‐HCS) is easily achieved by radio‐ by: 4.   A more recently discovered placental hormone is called human chorionic somatomammotropin. It is a protein with a molecular weight of ab, and it begins to be secreted by the placenta at about the fifth week of pregnancy.   The human growth hormone/chorionic somatomammotropin at chromosome 17 is implicated in regulation of postnatal and intrauterine growth. maternal smoking associated with a reduction in cord blood hPL Three single nucleotide polymorphisms in CGB5 and CSH1 genes were genotyped for offspring of the cases and controls. This chapter discusses the secretion and physiology of chorionic somatomammotropin in primates. Human chorionic somatomammotropin (hCS) is a peptide secreted by the syncytiotrophoblast throughout gestation. Quantitative and qualitative differences in the biological activities of hCS and hGH have been described in animals and by:

  Also known as human chorionic somatomammotropin (HCS), human placental lactogen (hPL) is a peptide (or protein) hormone, which is exclusively produced by the human placenta – a temporary organ that originates in the uterus during pregnancy with the sole role of offering nutrition and oxygen to the fetus and removing wastes from the fetal blood. human chorionic somatomammotropin: lactogen isolated from human placentas and structurally similar to somatotropin; its biologic activity weakly mimics that of somatotropin and prolactin; secreted into maternal circulation; a deficiency of HPL during pregnancy leads to children who undergo abnormal intrauterine and postnatal growth. Placental lactogen, also called chorionic somatomammotropin, is a polypeptide placental hormone, part of the somatotropin structure and function is similar to that of growth modifies the metabolic state of the mother during pregnancy to facilitate the energy supply of the fetus..

Question Name the hormones that are secreted in human only during pregnancy. Answer: human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) human Chorionic Somatomammotropin (hCS) relaxin; Question State the role.

The first cloning of a human gene sequence, that of chorionic somatomammotropin, was reported by Shine et al. (). From studies of cDNA transcribed from human placental lactogen mRNA, McWilliams et al. () concluded that there are 2 copies of the gene per haploid genome. Serial Human Chorionic Somatomammotropin (HCS) levels were measured during the last 10 weeks of pregnancy in 57 patients ( samples). There was a gradual rise from μg/ml at the 30th week to μgl ml at the 40th week, with a plateau during the last 4 weeks of : P. C. T. Chew, J. A. Salmon, S. S. Ratnam. Human chorionic somatomammotropin (hCS, also referred to as human placental lactogen [hPL]), human growth hormone (hGH-N and hGH-V), and prolactin (hPRL) are members of a superfamily of protein hormones that regulate growth and development. The hCS, hGH, and hPRL precursor genes are closely related, but the hCS/hGH gene cluster is located.
