Thyroid hormone action and metabolism are intracellular events that require transport of the hormone across the plasma membrane. We tested the possible involvement of the Na+/taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (Ntcp) and organic anion transporting polypeptide (oatp1) in the hepatic uptake of the prohormone T4, the active hormone T3, and the metabolites(More)
Although it was originally believed that thyroid hormones enter target cells by passive diffusion, it is now clear that cellular uptake is effected by carrier-mediated processes. Two stereospecific binding sites for each T4 and T3 have been detected in cell membranes and on intact cells from humans and other species. The apparent Michaelis-Menten values of(More)
Male Wistar rats were treated with 50 mg 3,3',4,4'-tetrachlorobiphenyl (TCB)/kg BW or vehicle. After 4 days, the livers were isolated and perfused for 90 min with 2 nM [125I]T3 or 10 nM [125I]T4 in Krebs-Ringer medium containing 1% albumin. Deiodination and conjugation products and remaining substrates were determined in bile and medium samples by Sephadex(More)
We studied the effects of 3-carboxy-4-methyl-5-propyl-2-furan-propanoic acid (CMPF), indoxyl sulfate, and hippuric acid on iodide production by rat hepatocytes in primary cultures. We questioned whether these substances could explain the alteration of serum thyroid hormone parameters observed in renal failure. Iodide production from [125I]T4 by rat(More)
5'-Deiodination of thyroxine (yielding 3,3',5-tri-iodothyronine; reaction I) and of 3,3',5'-tri-iodothyronine (yielding 3,3'-di-iodothyronine; reaction II) and 5-deiodination of thyroxine (yielding 3,3',5'-tri-iodothyronine; reaction III) and of 3,3',5-tri-iodothyronine (yielding 3,3'-di-iodothyronine; reaction IV) as catalysed by rat liver microsomal(More)
