Amino Acid Composition of Proteins Extracted from Endemic Goiter Glands.


Proteins were isolated and characterized in thyroid tissue of six patients from Brazil with endemic goiter. Biochemical studies of these thyroidal proteins included gel filtration, electrophoresis, and amino acid analysis. In addition to thyroglobulin, two of the most abundant proteins found in all goiters studied had molecular weights of 68 and 14 kDa. One… (More)
