Thyroid stimulating hormone receptor
(TSHR) is a gene that encodes a membrane protein that controls thyroid cell metabolism.
The protein functions as a receptor for thyrothropin and thyrostimulin. Missense mutations,
nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions, and in-frame deletions are observed
in cancers such as intestinal cancer, skin cancer, and thyroid cancer.
