PMSG is a complex glycoprotein obtained from the serum of pregnant mares. This 43-63 kda protein is capable of supplementing and being substituted for the follicle stimulating gonadotrophin and interstitial cell-stimulating hormone of the anterior pituitary gland in both the male and female. Thus PMSG-Intervet stimulates development of the ovarian follicle in the female.
The PMSG was lyophilized with no additives.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized PMSG in sterile 18M-cm H2O at a concentration of 1000 IU/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Serum of pregnant mares.
Lyophilized PMSG although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored between 2-8°C.
