In humans, the expression of somatostatin and VIP is sexually differentiated in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (Fig. , sexual behavior, aggression, exploration); however, in many cases, the physiologic significance of sex differences in the pattern and degree of neurotransmitter expression is unknown. The mechanisms through which sex steroids permanently alter the expression of neurotransmitter systems are believed to involve regulation of apoptosis (programmed cell death), neuronal migration, neurite outgrowth, synaptogenesis, and astrocyte morphology.

Despite the absence of any striking sequence homology, the two subunits in both heterodimers have similar folds, characterized by three major loops, and each subunit contains a cystine knot motif, consisting of three disulfides located in the core of each subunit. The α and β subunits contain, in addition to the three disulfides in the cystine knot, two and three disulfides, respectively. In both hCG and hFSH, the two subunits are associated in a head-to-tail arrangement. Although there are no structures available for LH and TSH, the similarities of the hCG and FSH structures engender confidence that the overall conformations of LH and TSH will be closely related to the known structures.
