|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in the thyroid. .|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. FSH/LSH/TSH subfamily.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Alternative Names||Thyrotropin receptor;Thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor;TSH-R;TSHR;LGR3;|
|Research Areas|||signal transduction|growth factors/hormones| neuroscience|endocrine system|thyroid axis||

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
