Nuclear 3,5,3′-triiodothyronine (T3) in brown adipose tissue: receptor occupancy and sources of T3 as determined by in vivo techniques.
Share

The amount and sources of T3 associated with high affinity, low capacity cellular nuclear receptors in brown adipose tissue (BAT) have been estimated by in vivo pulse-labeling techniques. Maximal binding capacity was measured by in vivo saturation analysis. Nuclear receptor occupancy at endogenous levels of T3 and T4 in euthyroid rats was estimated from the […]

Extrathyroidal conversion of thyroxine to 3,5,3′-triiodothyronine in cold-acclimated thyroxine-maintained thyroidectomized rats.
Share

Chronic exposure of rats to cold (4 degrees C) leads to thyroid gland hyperactivity as a compensatory mechanism for activating body heat production. There is increased extrathyroidal production of T3 from T4 in parallel to thyroid hormone hypersecretion. Since the 5′-deiodination (5′-D) of T4 can be modulated by thyroid hormones, it has been suggested that […]

Thyroxine induced transformation in sarcoplasmic reticulum of rabbit soleus and psoas muscles.
Share

The properties of the sarcoplasmic reticulum membranes isolated from slow-twitch type I soleus and fast-twitch type II psoas muscles of control and thyroxine treated rabbits were comparatively studied. Membrane yield, maximal calcium storing capacity, ATP-supported calcium uptake, calcium-dependent ATPase activity and calcium-dependent phosphoprotein formation were found to be 3-10 fold higher in psoas than in […]

Hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid function in rats undergoing cholesterol feeding.
Share

We have examined the effect of hypothalamic extracts of rats fed cholesterol excess (1%) on TSH and Prl secretions from in vitro incubated pituitaries derived from normal rats. The TSH activity in the hypothalamic extracts from rats fed cholesterol excess was greater than that observed in the control extracts, indicating that increased Prl and TSH […]

Influence of Mast Cells on Thyroid Function.
Share

The role of mast cells on thyroid gland function was studied with respect to two sites of thyroid control: 1. the thyroid gland; 2. the hypothalamus pituitary system. It was observed that the treatment with disodium cromoglycate (mast cells stabilizer) partially blocked the TSH actions on thyroid gland, thus evidencing the thyroidal mast cells as […]
