Descriptor tirotropina
Entry term(s) TSH
hormona estimulante de la tiroides
Scope note: Hormona glicoproteica segregada por la ADENOHIPÓFISIS. Estimula la GLÁNDULA TIROIDES mediante el aumento del transporte de yoduro, la síntesis y la liberación de las hormonas tiroideas (TIROXINA y TRIYODOTIRONINA). La tirotropina está formada por dos subunidades no covalentes (alfa y beta) unidas. En una especie, la subunidad alfa es común en las hormonas glicoproteicas hipofisarias (TSH, HORMONA LUTEINIZANTE y FSH), pero la subunidad beta es única y le confiere su especificidad biológica.

Scope note: A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Thyrotropin stimulates 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.
Annotation: for alpha subunit, coord with GLYCOPROTEIN HORMONES, ALPHA SUBUNIT; THYROTROPIN, BETA SUBUNIT is also available
