Adult mouse and human organoids derived from thyroid follicular cells and modeling of Graves’ hyperthyroidism

This study describes an organoid-based model system to study mouse and human thyroid biology. SORT-seq and transmission electron microscopy confirmed that thyroid follicular cell organoids phenocopy primary thyroid tissue. Moreover, the study explores the potential of human organoids for modeling an autoimmune disease, the anti-TSH receptor antibody-driven Graves’ hyperthyroidism.
