Chemical Thyrotropin

Name Thyrotropin
CAS Type 1 Name Thyrotropin
Equivalent Terms Hormone, Thyroid-Stimulating | Thyreotropin | Thyroid Stimulating Hormone | Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone | Thyrotrophin | TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
CAS Registry Number 9002-71-5
Definition A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Thyrotropin stimulates THYROID GLAND by increasing the iodide transport, synthesis and release of thyroid hormones (THYROXINE and TRIIODOTHYRONINE). Thyrotropin consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH; LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
