Human Thyrotrophin Receptor Monoclonal Antibody - Clone 2C11 [MASTER RECORD FOR MONITORING INCOME TO / FROM SGUL ON SHEPHERD mAbs]

The human thyrotrophin receptor (TSHR) is found primarily in epithelial cells of thyroid follicles where it induces (by cAMP) the phospholipase C and protein kinase A signal transduction pathways.  TSHR is the major pathogenic autoantigen in human autoimmune thyroid Graves’ disease.
