DIO3 (type III iodothyronine deiodinase), an iodothyronine deiodinase family member, is expressed in placenta and several fetal tissues in the plasma/endosomal membranes as single-pass type II membrane protein, and it catalyzes the deiodination of T4 (3,5,3',5'-tetraiodothyronine) into RT3 (3,3',5'-triiodothyronine) and of T3 (3,5,3'-triiodothyronine) into T2 (3,3'-diiodothyronine), both RT3 and T2 being inactive metabolites thus preventing premature exposure of developing fetus to adult levels of thyroid hormones. DIO3 controls circulating thyroid hormone levels throughout gestation by controlling thyroid hormone inactivation during embryological development. DIO3 is homodimeric and may undergo minor heretodimerization with DIO1 or DIO2, homo- or heterodimer state being critical for its catalytic activity. Its activity has been identified in only a limited number of postnatal tissues, i.e. brain, skin, and pregnant uterus, whereas it is abundantly present in several fetal tissues. Furthermore, DIO3 re-expression has been shown in certain pathologies that include cancer, cardiac hypertrophy, myocardial infarction, chronic inflammation, and critical illness.

FAQs for DIO3 Antibody (NB110-96414). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).
I am looking for a Dio3 peptide that I can inject in vivo to produce a biological effect. Can you provide information or confirm whether the Dio3 peptide you have would be effective as a biological agent in vivo?
I have pulled up information on the Dio3 peptides and recombinant proteins that we have available. Unfortunately I would not expect any of them to be biologically active and capable of producing a response when injected in vivo. The two peptides we carry are simply intended to be used for negative control competition assays to block signal of the primary and determine what is specific and non-specific as far as signal is concerned. The other two recombinant proteins are ones we distribute for a Taiwanese company called Abnova and they should not be biologically active based on the cell free wheat germ system employed to synthesize them. We will typically list our active proteins with an indication of such on our datasheet if it has been tested and usually the application of functional listed.
