Belongs to the transthyretin family.
Detected in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (at protein level). Highly expressed in choroid plexus epithelial cells. Detected in retina pigment epithelium and liver.
Not glycosylated under normal conditions. Following unfolding, caused for example by variant AMYL-TTR 'Gly-38', the cryptic Asn-118 site is exposed and glycosylated by STT3B-containing OST complex, leading to its degradation by the ER-associated degradation (ERAD) pathway.
Transthyretin (TTR) originally called prealbumin is a serum and cerebrospinal fluid carrier of the thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4) and retinol. Prealbumin concentrations are disproportionately high in human ventricular cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Over 80 different disease-causing mutations in prealbumin have been reported. TTR is known to be associated with the amyloid diseases senile systemic amyloidosis (SSA), familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP), and familial amyloid cardiomyopathy (FAC).
