Homology model of thyroxine binding globulin and elucidation of the thyroid hormone binding site.

Abstract

The tertiary structure of thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) has been modelled on the basis of its close homology to alpha 1-antitrypsin, the archetype of the serine protease inhibitor (serpin) superfamily. Energy minimization was applied to the model to refine the structure further. The putative thyroid hormone binding region suggested in previous labelling… (More)
