a heterodimer of two new human glycoprotein hormone subunits (alpha2 (A2) and beta5 (B5)) that activates the thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor; human thyrotropin (TSH), luteotropin (LH), follitropin (FSH), and chorionic gonadotropin are members of the heterodimeric glycoprotein hormone family, the common alpha subunit forms noncovalent heterodimers with different beta subunits; GenBank AF403384 (A2), AF403430 (B5)
Also Known As:
GPA2 protein, human; GPA2 protein, rat; GPB2 protein, rat; GPB5 protein, human; GPHA2 protein, human; GPHB5 protein, human; Thyrostimulin alpha subunit protein, human; glycoprotein hormone alpha 2, human; glycoprotein hormone beta 5, human; thyrostimulin A2; thyrostimulin B2; thyrostimulin subunit beta, human
