Thyroid stimulating hormone, beta also known as TSHB is a protein which in humans is encoded by the TSHB gene.[3][4]

Function[edit]

Thyrotropin-stimulating hormone (TSH) is a noncovalently linked glycoprotein heterodimer and is part of a family of pituitary hormones containing a common alpha subunit (TSHA) and a unique beta subunit (this protein) that confers specificity.[5]
