SHBG in Human Liver. SHBG was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human liver using Goat Anti-Human SHBG Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF2656) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Human SHBG (also known as ABP or androgen-binding protein) is a variably glycosylated, secreted non-disulfide linked homodimer that belongs to the SHBG family. Members of this small family have tandem repeats of 170 amino acid (aa) long laminin alpha chain G-like domains. Each SHBG monomer is a 47-53 kDa, 373 aa glycoprotein that contains one steroid-binding site in its N-terminal G-like domain. Male and female sex hormones are bound with equal affinity. SHBG is synthesized by the liver and circulates in blood; ABP (SHBG in the testis) is synthesized by Sertoli cells and circulates in the male reproductive system. Human SHBG shares approximately 67% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat SHBG.
