Serum levels of thyroglobulin (Tg) is considered a valuable measurement for quantitively evaluating thyroid cancer treatment efficacy. Immunoassays are commonly used for Tg level evaluation but return many false negatives. This is due to a large proportion of patients expressing anti-Tg antibodies (TgAb), which outcompete the reagent antibodies for Tg.
Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is potentially better at quantification of Tg as TgAb should less influence it.
The Tg-VIF heavy arginine residue at position 12 is isotopically labelled with carbon-13 and nitrogen-15. This will allow absolute quantification applications such as quantitative proteomics, the quantification of complex protein mixtures at very low concentrations, or NMR studies.
