Progress in the purification of the thyroid-stimulating hormone of the anterior pituitary has been slow, when compared to that of corticotropin, growth hormone, and prolactin, which are now well characterized. Earlier workers concentrated thyrotropic activity, which has been attributed to a glycoprotein, by a variety of extraction and precipitation procedures, and preparations whose potencies can be estimated to be about 1 to 4 U.S.P. units per mg have been reported (2, 3).
