LHR Receptor for lutropin-choriogonadotropic hormone. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. FSH/LSH/TSH subfamily. Gonadal and thyroid cells. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
