Gonadotropin

glycoprotein polypeptide hormones secreted by gonadotrope cells of the anterior pituitary of vertebrates

Gonadotropins (or Gonadotrophins) are hormones. The two main hormones of the group are Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Gonadotropins are hormones that tell the testicles to make sperm or the uterus to release an egg.
