receptors, lh

Those protein complexes or molecular sites on the surfaces and cytoplasm of gonadal cells that bind luteinizing or chorionic gonadotropic hormones and thereby cause the gonadal cells to synthesise and secrete sex steroids. The hormone-receptor complex is internalised from the plasma membrane and initiates steroid synthesis.
