Application

Thyroglobulin is used for antibody purification and characterization. Thyroglobulin has been used in studies assessing the monitoring of differentiated thyroid cancer as well as to develop an accurate diagnostic tool for patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases.
Often used as a carrier protein for the production of antibodies. Its advantage is the large number of tyrosine residues that can be used for conjugation using the diazo reaction.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Iodine-containing protein that is stored in the thyroid gland. Converted into circulating thyroxines when the thyroid is stimulated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) from the pituitary. Because its expression is unique to the thyroid, it is a sensitive indicator of recurrence or metastasis of thyroid cancer that has been treated by thyroid ablation.

Plants are foundational for global ecological and economic systems, but most plant proteins remain uncharacterized. Protein interaction networks often suggest protein functions and open new avenues to characterize genes and proteins. We therefore systematically determined protein complexes from 13 plant
