Abstract
Graves? disease (GD) is caused by persistent, unregulated stimulation of thyroid cells by thyroid-stimulating antibodies (TSAbs) that activate the TSH receptor (TSHR). We identified the first small molecule ?drug-like? TSHR antagonists, which inhibit TSH- and TSAb-stimulated signaling, and the first TSHR inverse agonists, which are antagonists that inhibit basal (agonist-independent) TSHR signaling in addition to TSH- and TSAb-stimulated signaling. To be used as therapy for GD, it would be important that an antagonist inhibits TSHR activation by the majority of TSAbs. The inverse agonist inhibited stimulated cAMP production by an average of 61% by all thirty GD sera tested. Furthermore, the inverse agonist inhibited basal and GD sera-induced up-regulation of the expression of thyroperoxidase mRNA in primary cultures of human thyrocytes by 65%. Another potential clinical application of a TSHR antagonist beyond treatment of the hyperthyroidism of GD could be alleviating the signs and symptoms of Graves? ophthalmopathy (GO), a disease of the eye found in GD patients in which there is overproduction of hyaluronic acid. We showed that the inverse agonist reduced TSH- and TSAb-stimulated cAMP production and hyaluronic acid production in Graves? orbital fibroblasts. Furthermore, we demonstrated in vivo in mice that an improved and selective inverse agonist decreased endogenous serum free T4 levels and lowered the increase in free T4 stimulated by a human TSAb. This inverse agonist lowered mRNAs for sodium-iodide transporter and thyroperoxidase in the thyroid also. Our results provide proof-of-principle for effectiveness of small molecule TSHR antagonists, including inverse agonists, in vitro and in vivo and may lead to an orally active drug that targets the TSHR directly to treat GD and GO.
