Transthyretin binds to glucose-regulated proteins and is subjected to endocytosis by the pancreatic β-cell


Transthyretin (TTR) is a functional protein in the pancreatic β-cell. It promotes insulin release and protects against β-cell death. We now demonstrate by ligand blotting, adsorption to specific magnetic beads, and surface plasmon resonance that TTR binds to glucose-regulated proteins (Grps)78, 94, and 170, which are members of the endoplasmic reticulum… (More)
