The thyrotropin receptor (or TSH receptor) is a gene (and associated protein) which responds to thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as "thyrotropin", and stimulates the production of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The TSH receptor is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily of integral membrane proteins.[1]

It is primarily found on the surface of the thyroid epithelial cells.

It should not be confused with "thyrotropin-releasing hormone" (TRH) or "thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor" (TRHR).
