Biochem/physiol Actions

Thyroglobulin is a major protein involved with iodine metabolism. It consists of an iodine-containing protein that is stored in the thyroid gland and is converted into circulating thyroxines when the thyroid is stimulated by TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) from the pituitary. Thyroglobulin is often used as a carrier protein for the production of antibodies. Its advantage as a carrier protein comes from its large number of tyrosine residues that can be used for conjugation using the diazo reaction.
Thyroglobulin has been shown to regulate the transcription of iodide porters including sodium iodide symporter and pendrin.

Thyroid plays an important role in the endocrine system of the human body. Its characterization by diffuse optics can open new path ways in the non-invasive diagnosis of thyroid pathologies. Yet, the absorption spectra of tyrosine and thyroglobulin-key tissue constituents...

Iodide transport by thyrocytes involves porters on the apical and basal surfaces of the cell facing the follicular lumen and bloodstream, respectively. Recent work identifies pendrin as an apical porter and shows that follicular thyroglobulin is a transcriptional regulator of...

Placental transport of iodide is required for fetal thyroid hormone production. The sodium iodide symporter (NIS) mediates active iodide transport into the thyroid and the lactating mammary gland and is also present in placenta. NIS is competitively inhibited by thiocyanate...
With the emergence of mass spectrometry for the clinical measurement of proteins in biological matrices, the development of biological reference materials will continue to grow in importance.
