  • Molecular Analysis of Giant Schnauzer-Type Congenital Hypothyroidism

    Isolated congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is a condition occurring at or near birth characterized by insufficient thyroid hormone production. The disorder in purebred dogs is usually inherited and leads to dwarfism and mental dullness. CH in giant schnauzers (GS) was first described in 1991 (Greco, et al) as a likely autosomal

  • Recombinant Thyrotropin (TSH)

    Standard for the Next Generation of Canine TSH Immunoassays With Improved Sensitivity Overall, this research project completed the genetic phase of the project and are reproducibly producing reasonable quantities of recombinant canine TSH in vitro and purifying it with high recovery to high purity. In the future, this standard can
