Summaries for TSHR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TSHR Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein and a major controller of thyroid cell metabolism. The encoded protein is a receptor for thyrothropin and thyrostimulin, and its activity is mediated by adenylate cyclase. Defects in this gene are a cause of several types of hyperthyroidism. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TSHR Gene

TSHR (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TSHR include hypothyroidism, congenital, nongoitrous, 1 and hyperthyroidism, nonautoimmune. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LGR6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TSHR Gene

  • Receptor for thyrothropin. Plays a central role in controlling thyroid cell metabolism. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase. Also acts as a receptor for thyrostimulin (GPA2+GPB5).

P16473-TSHR_HUMAN
The Asp727Glu polymorphism is associated with Graves disease in a Russian population. The Glu727 allele and the heterozygous Asp727Glu genotype are related to higher risk of the disease. The Asp727Glu polymorphism significantly ameliorates G(s)alpha protein activation in the presence of the gain-of-function mutation Ala593Asn although it is functionally inert in the context of the wild-type TSHR

TSHR_HUMAN
  • Note=Defects in TSHR are found in patients affected by hyperthyroidism with different etiologies. Somatic, constitutively activating TSHR mutations and/or constitutively activating G(s)alpha mutations have been identified in toxic thyroid nodules (TTNs) that are the predominant cause of hyperthyroidism in iodine deficient areas. These mutations lead to TSH independent activation of the cAMP cascade resulting in thyroid growth and hormone production. TSHR mutations are found in autonomously functioning thyroid nodules (AFTN), toxic multinodular goiter (TMNG) and hyperfunctioning thyroid adenomas (HTA). TMNG encompasses a spectrum of different clinical entities, ranging from a single hyperfunctioning nodule within an enlarged thyroid, to multiple hyperfunctioning areas scattered throughout the gland. HTA are discrete encapsulated neoplasms characterized by TSH-independent autonomous growth, hypersecretion of thyroid hormones, and TSH suppression. Defects in TSHR are also a cause of thyroid neoplasms (papillary and follicular cancers).
  • Note=Autoantibodies against TSHR are directly responsible for the pathogenesis and hyperthyroidism of Graves disease. Antibody interaction with TSHR results in an uncontrolled receptor stimulation.
  • Hypothyroidism, congenital, non-goitrous, 1 (CHNG1) [MIM:275200]: A non-autoimmune condition characterized by resistance to thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) leading to increased levels of plasma TSH and low levels of thyroid hormone. It presents variable severity depending on the completeness of the defect. Most patients are euthyroid and asymptomatic, with a normal sized thyroid gland. Only a subset of patients develop hypothyroidism and present a hypoplastic thyroid gland. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10720030, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11095460, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11442002, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12050212, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14725684, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15531543, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7528344, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8954020, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9100579, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9185526, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9329388}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Familial gestational hyperthyroidism (HTFG) [MIM:603373]: A condition characterized by abnormally high levels of serum thyroid hormones occurring during early pregnancy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:9854118}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Hyperthyroidism, non-autoimmune (HTNA) [MIM:609152]: A condition characterized by abnormally high levels of serum thyroid hormones, thyroid hyperplasia, goiter and lack of anti-thyroid antibodies. Typical features of Graves disease such as exophthalmia, myxedema, antibodies anti-TSH receptor and lymphocytic infiltration of the thyroid gland are absent. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10199795, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10852462, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11081252, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11127522, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11201847, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11517004, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11549687, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15163335, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7800007, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7920658, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8636266, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8964822, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9349581, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9360555, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9398746, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9589634}.
