Abstract
    A gonadotropin, named GTH X, and LH were purified from the sturgeon pituitary. LH and GTH exhibited different physico-chemical and immunochemical properties. GTH X was a more stable molecule than LH. Both LH and GTHX possessed gonadotropic activity. The N-terminal ammo-acid sequence of LH and GTH X subunits allowed to conclude, that GTH X is a homodimer, composed of two alpha -subunit.
