The iodination sites of bovine thyrotropin.


Iodination of bovine thyrotropin (TSH) using a lactoperoxidase-catalyzed labeling method at pH 5.6 results in modification of both the alpha- and beta-subunits. In particular, 3 of the 5 tyrosine residues of the alpha-subunit and 9 of the 11 tyrosine residues in the beta-subunit are accessible to surface iodination. However, the reactivity of these tyrosine… (More)
