The cAMP response in cultured human and dog thyroid cells was used to examine the relationship between human TSH, nonprimate TSH, and thyroid-stimulating immunoglobulin (TSI) bioactivity in human and nonhuman thyroid tissue. The bovine TSH (bTSH) to human TSH potency ratio was approximately 6-fold greater in dogs than in human thyroid cells. Relative bioactivity of bTSH and TSI also differed in these cell types. Thus, four TSI samples produced approximately 6-fold greater stimulation relative to bTSH in human thyroid than in dog thyroid cells. It is discussed why these data suggest that the TSH receptor as well as TSH and TSI display species specificity as defined by the classical concept of this term.
