We have isolated and sequenced a cDNA encoding the human luteinizing hormone--choriogonadotropin (LH/hCG) receptor. The deduced amino acid sequence (699 residues) containing seven putative transmembrane segments displays sequence similarity to G protein-coupled receptors. The receptor consists of 335 residue extracellular domain which contains six N-linked glycosylation sites. While the protein is 85 and 87% identical overall with the previously cloned rat and porcine LH/hCG receptor respectively, the most highly conserved regions are the putative transmembrane segments (91 and 94% similarity, respectively).
