Sheep anti Human chorionic gonadotrophin antibody recognizes human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a ~30 kDa hormone produced by placental syncytiotrophoblasts. hCG acts to maintain the corpus luteum until the developing placenta is able to produce the required levels of oestrogen and progesterone.

hCG shares a common alpha chain with the pituitary hormones FSH, TSH and LH, but has a unique beta chain. Sheep anti Human chorionic gonadotrophin antibody reacts with intact hCG.
