Mouse anti Human Placental Growth Hormone, clone 78.7C12 recognises the placenta-specific variant of human growth hormone, also known as growth hormone 2 (GH2). It plays an important role in growth control.

Mouse anti Human Placental Growth Hormone, clone 78.7C12 shows some cross reactivity with human pituitary growth hormone (~5%), but does not react with human placental lactogen or human prolactin.

Mouse anti Human Placental Growth Hormone, clone 78.7C12 has been used successfully as a detection reagent for human placental growth hormone following biotinylation using a LYNX rapid biotin antibody conjugation kit (LNK041B) in a sandwich ELISA with Mouse anti Human Placental Growth Hormone, clone 78.8E8 (MCA5827G) as a capture reagent (Laio et al. 2017).
