The decapeptide (pyro)Glu-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-Gly-Leu-Arg-Pro-Gly-NH2, corresponding to the amino acid sequence of the porcine LH- and FSH-releasing hormone ( LH-RH FSH-RH) has been synthesized by the solid phase method. After repurification, the synthetic product showed the same physico-chemical and biological properties as natural porcine LH-RH FSH-RH.
