  1. We found a significant correlation between hCG and LH-receptor expression whereas hCG expression and FSH-receptor expression do not correlate with each other. (IRS = immunoreactive score, Int = staining intensity)
  2. ** Correlation is significant at the 0.01 level (2-tailed)
  3. * Correlation is significant at the 0.05 level (2-tailed)
