TBG (Thyroxine Binding Globulin)

Description

Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG), a glycoproteine produced in the liver, binds both thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) with high affinity. Because TBG accounts for 76% of plasma protein thyroxine-binding activity, and increase or decrease in it’s circulating with true thyroid gland dysfunction. A number of diseases and medications, as well as inherited alterations in TGB gene expression, can change the serum TBG concentration.
