11580-8Thyrotropin [Units/volume] in Serum or Plasma by Detection limit <= 0.005 mIU/LActive

Term Description

This is a so called 3rd generation test and "detection limit" given is the analytic detection limit (Functional detection limit would be higher)

Part Descriptions

LP14487-0   Thyrotropin
A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (anterior pituitary gland). Thyrotropin stimulates the thyroid gland by increasing the iodide transport, synthesis and release of thyroid hormones (thyroxine and triiodothyronine). Thyrotropin consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH; Luteinizing hormone and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
