Four polymorphisms were identified in the coding exons of the human luteinizing hormone/chorionic gonadotropin receptor (hLHR) gene. A CTGCAG insertion occurred after nucleotide 54 in 8 of 34 independent chromosomes examined. The heterozygosity frequency was 0.353. This Leu-Gln dipeptide insertion in the first Leucine repeat of the hLHR extracellular domain did not affect the ligand binding affinity of the receptor. Among the 54 chromosomes analyzed, 64.8% was A and 35.2% was G at nucleotide 872 in exon 10. The heterozygosity frequency was 0.115. The A/G substitution led to the replacement of Asn by Ser in the G allele and the abolition of a potential N-glycosylation site. Another polymorphism occurred at nucleotide 935. Fifty nine percent of chromosomes examined were A and 41% were G at this site with the encoded amino acid being Ser in the former and Asn in the latter. The heterozygosity frequency was 0.192. This polymorphism did not have biological consequence. Both of the exon 10 polymorphisms showed ethnic prevalence with the 872 G allele and 935 A allele predominantly in non-Caucasians. The fourth polymorphism was neutral and occurred at nucleotide 1065 in exon 11, with C in 60% and T in 40% of the 50 chromosomes examined. These polymorphisms are useful for tracking the inheritance of specific hLHR allele.
