    ..This TSH-related increase in TSHR digested forms was further increased by wild-type peptide. We have identified for the first time ADAM10 as the TSHR cleavage enzyme and shown that TSH regulates its activation. ..

    ..As in other species, the heterologous gonadotropin, hCG, partially activated the receptor. These results suggested that TSHR plays important roles for gametogenesis rather than embryogenesis. ..
