Follicle stimulating hormone Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Gonal-F was launched in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, France and the UK for the treatment of infertility. The recombinant follicule stimulating hormone (recFSH) was produced by introducing the genes for the α- and β-FSH subunits into the genome of Chinese hamster ovary cells. The isolated recFSH was a glycosylated bioactive dimer that appeared to be identical to urinary human FSH. Biochemically, the recFSH was equal to or slightly better to the uroFSH. The ultra-high purity of recFSH makes it less prone to side effects from contaminants in uroFSH and can be injectable.


Puregon was launched in Denmark, Germany and the UK for ovulation induction in clomiphene-resistent anovulation and controlled ovarian hyperstimulation. Transfected Chinese hamster ovary cells with plasmids containing the genes encoding the α- and β-FSH subunits produced recFSH that was similar to uroFSH. In both cases (follitropin α and β) no antibody formation was detected, however, this form appeared to be more active than follitropin α in that there was a 25% greater pregnancy rate compared to uroFSH.

Clinical Use

The gonadotropin follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH), follitropin alfa (Gonal-F) and follitropin beta (Follistim), are produced in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. FSH can function in two ways. On the one hand, it causes increased spermatogenesis in men. On the other hand, in concert with estrogen and luteinizing hormone (LH), it stimulates follicular growth and development in women. Consequently, FSH may be useful in the treatment of infertility. FSH is a member of a superfamily of proteins, all structurally related, which includes LH, chorionic gonadotropin, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).

Purification Methods

FSH is purified by Sephadex G100 gel filtration followed by carboxymethyl-cellulose with NH4OAc pH 5.5. The latter separates luteinising hormone from FSH. Its solubility in H2O is 0.5%. It has an isoelectric point of 4.5. A solution of 1mg in saline (100mL) can be kept at 60o for 0.5hour. Activity is retained in a solution at pH 7-8 for 0.5hour at 75o. The activity of a 50% aqueous EtOH solution is destroyed at 60o in 15minutes. [Bloomfield et al.
