Background
The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear hormone receptor for triiodothyronine. It is one of the several receptors for thyroid hormone, and has been shown to mediate the biological activities of thyroid hormone. Knockout studies in mice suggest that the different receptors, while having certain extent of redundancy, may mediate different functions of thyroid hormone. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Technology:

Cell Based Protein Interaction
?

DiscoveRx Protein Interaction Assays are cell-based assays designed to measure protein interaction in engineered cell lines using our proprietary EFC technology. The interaction can be triggered by protein activation/inactivation and is the basis of several DiscoveRx cell based assays including the Arrestin and the Kinase assays. Learn more about our Cell Based Protein Interaction Assays.

, Cell Based Translocation
?

DiscoveRx Protein Translocation Assays are cell-based assays designed to measure protein translocation in engineered cell lines using our proprietary EFC technology. The translocation can occur to either the endosome, membrane, cytosol or nucleus and can be triggered by protein activation/inactivation. This forms the basis of several DiscoveRx cell based assays including the GPCR Internalization and the NHR Translocation assays. Learn more about our Cell Based Translocation Assays.

, Biochemical
?

DiscoveRx Biochemical Assays are designed as homogenous, competitive in vitro assays for precise, highly sensitive detection of specific analytes, protein binding or protease cleavage. These highly robust, reliable assays are anchored in our proprietary EFC technology, minimizing false positive due to autofluorescence and are HTS compatible. Learn more about our Biochemical Assays.
