CSH1 Molecule Background
Chorionic somatomammotropin hormone (CSH1) is also known as Placental lactogen (PL), Choriomammotropin. CSH1 is a secreted protein, which belongs to the somatotropin/prolactin family. CSH1 is produced only during pregnancy and is involved in stimulating lactation, fetal growth and metabolism. CSH1 does not interact with GHR but only activates PRLR through zinc-induced dimerization.
