  • Patent number: 5856137
    Abstract: Biologically active heterodimeric human fertility hormones composed of two different subunits, each subunit being synthesized in the same cell transformed by at least one cell expression vector having heterologous DNA encoding each subunit with each subunit being controlled by a separate promoter. Preferred human fertility hormones include hCG, hLH and hFSH.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 7, 1995
    Date of Patent: January 5, 1999
    Assignee: Genzyme Corporation
    Inventors: Vermuri B. Reddy, Nancy Hsiung, Anton K. Beck, Edward George Berstine
  • Patent number: 5767251
    Abstract: Biologically active heterodimeric human fertility hormones composed of two different subunits, each subunit being synthesized in the same cell transformed by at least one cell expression vector having heterologous DNA encoding each subunit with each subunit being controlled by a separate promoter. Preferred human fertility hormones include hCG, hLH and hFSH.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 22, 1993
    Date of Patent: June 16, 1998
    Assignee: Genzyme Corporation
    Inventors: Vermuri B. Reddy, Nancy Hsiung, Anton K. Beck, Edward George Bernstine
  • Patent number: 5639640
    Abstract: The correct sequence is disclosed for the beta subunit of human follicle stimulating hormone which, when present in a recombinant heterodimeric human fertility hormone allows the production of biologically active hormone. DNA coding for such beta subunit of human FSH may thus be prepared as well as expression vectors containing such DNA and cells transfected therewith.
    Type: Grant
