Progesterone-BSA Conjugate contains progesterone 3-CMO conjugated to Bovine Serum Albumin at a ratio of 30 moles progesterone/mole of BSA.

Progesterone is a steroid hormone synthesized from the cholesterol derivative, pregnenolone, in the cortex of the adrenal gland. It is secreted by the corpus luteum and acts to prepare the endometrium for the implantation of a fertilized egg. During pregnancy, progesterone is secreted by the placenta in order to prevent spontaneous abortion and to stimulate the development of mammary tissue to produce milk.
