The TSH molecule is sandwiched between the two antibodies. 01 mU/L (13). 01 mU/L) due to hyperthyroidism and is termed ultrasensitive TSH assay. A variety of third-generation TSH assays are now commercially available (14). Other third-generation TSH assay techniques include two-site chemiluminescent immunoassays and time-resolved immunofluorometric assays (TR-IFMA) (15,16). 01 mU/L for third-generation TSH assays (Table 3). 1 mU/L. Despite these significant improvements in TSH measurements, there are several situations in which TSH does not reflect the patient’s thyroid status.

Degradation of the N-terminus of the B subunit then reaccelerates to the vicinity of the plasma membrane. Continued degradation would lead to A subunit shedding (see below). In either case, 50 aa insertion can be removed from the subunit structure. The cleavage does not involve a specific amino acid motif and appears to be influenced by tertiary structure near the cleavage sites (for example, 50 aa insertion for upstream site 1) (17). The enzyme involved in and functional significance of the cleavage remains to be determined.
