Autoimmune thyroid disease is associated with enhanced expression of major histocompatibility complex class I antigens on thyrocytes. To better understand this phenomenon, we have studied the normal(More)
Thyrotropin (TSH) and IgG preparations from patients with Graves' disease increase inositol phosphate as well as cAMP formation in Cos-7 cells transfected with rat TSH receptor cDNA. Mutation of(More)
Residues 287 to 404 of the rat thyrotropin (TSH) receptor exhibit little homology to gonadotropin receptors. A large segment of this region, residues 303-382, has no determinants important for TSH to(More)
The extracellular domain of the thyrotropin (TSH) receptor is the primary site with which TSH and receptor autoantibodies interact. Cysteines 494 or 569 in the 1st and 2nd exoplasmic loops,(More)
To examine the identity of binding sites for thyrotropin (TSH) and thyroid stimulating antibodies (TSAbs) associated with Graves' disease, we constructed eight human TSH receptor/rat LH-CG receptor(More)
