High impact information on SEC14L4
- Human thyrotropin-releasing hormone-associated peptide 3 (hTAP-3) in serum .
- These findings indicate the existence of intact hTAP-3 in the human serum and increases in plasma hTAP-3 levels in hyperthyroid patients, suggesting that blood hTAP-3 may be derived from the peripheral organs rather than the hypothalamus .
- The half-life of hTAP-3 in serum was approximately 3.5 min, and the addition of aprotinin and EDTA completely prevented its degradation .
- In hyperthyroid patients, plasma concentrations of hTAP-3 were significantly higher than those in the control group and hypothyroid patients, but no correlation was found between its level and that of thyroid hormone .
Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SEC14L4
- The dilution curve of hTAP-3 immunoreactivity in the serum paralleled the standard curve of the radioimmunoassay .
- HPLC analysis revealed a single strong immunoreactive peak, which corresponded to the authentic peptide, hTAP-3 .
