Post-translational Modification
The production of biologically active FSH requires appropriately folded and glycosylated FSHβ and common α subunits that assemble to form the heterodimeric hormone. FSHβ is glysolyated at asparagines 7 and 24, while the common α subunit is glycosylated at asparagines 52 and 78. They then assemble to form the biologically active FSH heterodimer [1].
