Gene: Tg (thyroglobulin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tg
Name: thyroglobulin
Description: Exhibits several functions, including anion binding activity; chaperone binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including response to lipopolysaccharide; thyroid hormone generation; and transcytosis. Localizes to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study hypothyroidism and isolated growth hormone deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Graves' disease; autoimmune thyroiditis; and goiter. Orthologous to human TG (thyroglobulin); PARTICIPATES IN thyroid hormone biosynthetic pathway; autoimmune thyroiditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
