Normal fetal neurological development depends on a regulated supply of maternal thyroid hormone (TH). We have previously demonstrated that transthyretin (TTR) a TH binding protein, is synthesized, secreted and internalized by trophoblast cells and may provide a route for the transfer of TH from mother to fetus. Our objective was to determine if a member of the low-density lipoprotein receptor family mediates TTR or TTR-TH internalization.

TTR-TH internalization by JEG-3 cells is reduced in the presence of receptor associated protein (RAP) or albumin suggesting that TTR-TH is internalized through an LDL-receptor dependent endocytic process.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
