FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes the receptor for both luteinizing hormone and choriogonadotropin. This receptor belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family, and its activity is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase. Mutations in this gene result in disorders of male secondary sexual character development, including familial male precocious puberty, also known as testotoxicosis, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, Leydig cell adenoma with precocious puberty, and male pseudohermaphtoditism with Leydig cell hypoplasia.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants are infertile and have abnormal hormone levels. Males have undescended testes, immature external and accessory sex organs and blocked spermatogenesis. Females have small ovaries and uteri, immature follicles and do not cycle. [provided by MGI curators]
