      DescriptionLbetaT2 Mouse Pituitary Gonadotrope Cell Line
      OverviewGonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) plays a key role in the control of reproduction in mammals. GnRH acts via its receptor, GnRH-R, to trigger the synthesis and release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the pituitary gonadotropes. In turn, the gonadotropins regulate gametogenesis and steroidogenesis in the gonads. LH and FSH comprise a common glycoprotein hormone  subunit, CGA, and the respective specific  subunits LH and FSH. The individual  subunits bind noncovalently to the common a subunit to form the mature glycoprotein hormones. Lhb gene expression is preferentially induced by high-frequency GnRH pulses, whereas low-frequency pulses favor Fshb expression.

      The immortalized LT2 mouse pituitary gonadotrope cell line was generated by targeted tumorigenesis in transgenic mice carrying the rat LHb regulatory region linked to the SV40 T-antigen oncogene.1 LT2 cells express CGA, GnRH-R, and LHb. The cell line responds to pulsatile GnRH stimulation by upregulating Lhb and Gnrhr and secreting LH. The LT2 cell line has been widely used as an in vitro model for the study of gonadotropin gene regulation and GnRH signaling.2,3,4,5 The global mRNA expression profile and a genome-wide atlas of accessible chromatin in GnRH-stimulated LβT2 cells has recently been described6 and the STR profile has also been reported.7
