Thyrotropic hormone or thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) belongs to the glycoprotein hormone family. Thyrotroph cells of the anterior pituitary gland produces TSH and is stored in the secretory granules. It comprises a heterodimer of two noncovalently linked subunits, α and β.
Thyrotropic hormone from human pituitary also referred to as TSH can be used as a medium supplement for primary cell culture, and is used further to study the molecular mechanisms of estrogen-mediated growth stimulation of human thyroid tumor cells.
In children, thyroid hormones are very much essential for the normal cognition and neurodevelopment. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test is mainly used to diagnose thyroid function.
Thyrotropic hormone or Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) belongs to glycoprotein hormone family. The product can enhance vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) secretion and angiogenesis in thyroid cancer cell lines.
Two-chain glycoprotein hormone. The α-chain is not active, biological specificity attributed rather to the β-chain. Activates adenylate cyclase in the thyroid gland, stimulating iodine uptake, thyroxine synthesis and release. Goitrogenic.
