Mouse anti Human thyroid stimulating hormone receptor antibody, clone 2C11 recognizes the human thyroid stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR) otherwise known as the thyrotropin receptor. TSHR is an important molecule in controlling the growth and function of the normal thyroid.

Mouse anti Human thyroid stimulating receptor antibody recognises both native and denatured TSH receptor (binding to an epitope at the carboxy terminus between amino acids 354 and 359). It does inhibit binding of TSH. No cross reactivity has been observed with related LH and FSH receptors.

Mouse anti Human thyroid stimulating hormone receptor antibody, clone 2C11 recognizes the mutant TSH receptor known as I167N as well as the wild type molecule (Costagliola et al. 1998)
