Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a tropic hormone that modulates the secretory activity of other endocrine glands. It is produced in the anterior hypophysis of the pituitary gland. LH antibody is useful for the labeling of normal gonadotropic cells of the pituitary and also for the classification of pituitary adenomas, as well as in the differential diagnosis of primary and metastatic tumors of the pituitary.
