Purified Human thyroxine binding globulin is native human thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) purifired from serum. TBG is a serpin produced in the liver with high affinity for the thyroid hormones T3 and T4. TBG reversibly binds T3 and T4, enabling their circulation around the bloodstream.
Purified protein from human serum - lyophilised
Reconstitute with sterile PBS containing 0.15M NaCl. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended. N.B. For functional studies do not add sodium azide. Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
