Target Background

INDIGO’s PANEL of TR Thyroid Hormone Receptor Panel Reporter Assays utilizes non-human mammalian cells engineered to express Human Thyroid Hormone Receptors Alpha (NR1A1) and Beta (NR1A2), ligand-dependent transcription factors commonly referred to as TRα and TRβ. Because each of these reporter cells incorporates a responsive luciferase reporter gene, quantifying expressed luciferase activity provides a sensitive surrogate measure of TR activities in the treated cells.

The principle application of this reporter assay system is in the screening of test samples to quantify any functional activity, either agonist or antagonist, that they may exert against human TRα and TRβ.
