Mouse anti progesterone monoclonal antibody, clone 1188/344
is specific for progesterone, a steroid hormone synthesized from the cholesterol derivative, pregnenolone, in the cortex of the adrenal gland.Progesterone is secreted by the corpus luteum

During pregnancy, it is secreted by the placenta in order to prevent spontaneous abortion and to stimulate the development of mammary tissue to produce milk. Progesterone is available as a pharmaceutical that can be used to treat menstrual disorders and for the prevention of miscarriage.Mouse anti progesterone exhibited the following cross-reactivties in ELISA:
