An immunochemical study of ovine follicle-stimulating hormone and its antibody carried out by using precipitin, agglutinating and complement-fixation systems, has suggested that the follicle-stimulating hormone, possibly by virtue of it being a univalent antigen, forms a soluble complex with its specific antibody. This antiserum is species nonspecific in that it is able to neutralize the follicle-stimulating activity of rat, mouse, hamster, guinea pig pituitary extracts, and pregnant mare serum gonadotropin. Human chorionic gonadotropin, however, has been shown not to form a complex with the follicle-stimulating hormone specific antibody.
