Thyroperoxidase a 105kDa glycoprotein which catalyses iodine oxidation and thyroglobulin tyrosyl iodination reactions in the thyroid gland and is essential for active thyroid hormone T4 and T3 synthesis.
Tiered high-throughput screening approach to identify thyroperoxidase inhibitors within the ToxCast phase I and II chemical libraries.
As stated previously, thyroid function laboratory tests should be routinely performed in patients who present with complaints of widespread pain and fatigue in order to rule out overt hypothyroidism as the cause of these symptoms, including thyroperoxidase and thyroglobulin antibody tests to screen for cases of autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Graves' disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Moreover, the aforementioned factors play a role in the manifestation of hypothyroidism and exacerbation of autoimmune process in patients with previously demonstrated thyroperoxidase (ATPO) and thyroglobulin (ATG) autoantibodies [5-9].
Therefore many physicians will routinely screen their patients with type I diabetes for AITD by testing for thyroperoxidase (TPOA) and thyroglobulin (TGA) autoantibodies, and will screen for chronic lymphocytic gastritis by testing for gastric parietal cell autoantibodies or intrinsic factor autoantibodies.
It came as a shock to see blood test results with elevated thyroperoxidase (TPO) and thyroglobulin (TG) antibodies, and a TSH around 5.
