|Thyroglobulin IgG ELISA||ILE-TGG01|
The Immunolab Thyroglobulin IgG Antibody ELISA Test Kit has been designed for the detection and the quantitative determination of specific IgG antibodies against Thyroglobulin in serum and plasma.
Thyroglobulin, a water-soluble glycoprotein, is produced in the thyroid gland. It is the main protein component of the thyroid. Thyroglobulin is responsible for the production and storage of thyroid hormones T3 and T4. Thyroglobulin is a strong autoantigen. Women with significant autoantibody titers against Thyroglobulin (anti-TG) and Thyroperoxidase (anti-TPO) can develop chronic thyroiditis (Hashimoto thyroiditis) resulting in thyroid atrophy and hypothyroidism. Thyroglobulin antibodies are found in 50 to 60 % of patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
