||Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) is down-regulated by hCG and believed to be an autocrine factor that regulates the ovary. The Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Receptor (GnRHR) is synthesized in the pituitary gland. Activin A has been shown to stimulate the synthesis of GnRHR, illustrating a possible mechanism for the modulation of gonadotropin responsiveness to GnRH.

||The antibody will remain stable for one year from the date of shipment if stored at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap and avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Aliquots will remain stable for three months if stored at 4°C.
||Briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container's cap because small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage.

This antibody reacts with GnRH receptors in the anterior pituitary. GnRH functions as a stimulator of gonadotrophs to release luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
