Mouse anti progesterone antibody, clone 9B4 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 and acts to prepare the endometrium for the implantation of a fertilized egg. 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 antibody, clone 9B4 does not cross react with cortisol, estradiol, estriol and testosterone.
