Western blot shows lysates of human thyroid tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Thyroglobulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8306) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Thyroglobulin at approximately 300 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Thyroglobulin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human thyroid cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human Thyroglobulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8306) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rabbit HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS005) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to epithelial cells.

Human Thyroglobulin (Tg) gene is localized at position 8q242-8q243. The gene covers a genome area of at least 300 000 bp and contains at least 37 exons. Thyroglobulin (Tg) is a dimeric 660 kDa glycoprotein produced by follicular cells (thyrocytes) in thyroid gland and stored in the follicular colloid of the gland. Tg is heterogenic due to post-translational modifications, such as iodination, glycosylation, sulfatation, phosphorylation and it is highly sensitivity to proteolysis. Acting as a substrate, Tg is used for the synthesis of thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Tg level can serve as a tumor marker of papillary and follicular thyroid cancer and elevated levels of anti-Tg antibodies in blood can be indicative of Graves disease.
