Progesterone, along with pregnenolone, is the biosynthetic precursor of all other steroid hormones. Progesterone is synthesized from cholesterol by the sequential action of desmolase in the mitochondria, which produces pregnenolone, followed by Δ4,5-isomerase in the outer mitochondrial membrane and smooth endoplasmic reticulum of steroid-secreting cells.1 The main function of progesterone is to prepare the uterine lining for implantation of a fertilized ovum and to maintain pregnancy. Measurement of serum or plasma progesterone levels are used as an index to monitor ovulation and investigate luteal function. Progesterone 3-PEG11-biotin is an affinity probe that allows progesterone to be detected or immobilized using the biotin ligand. The PEG11 moiety serves to separate the biotin linker from progesterone with a hydrophilic spacer.
