An experiment was conducted to evaluate the relative biopotency of triiodothyronine (T3) and of thyroxine (T4) for inducing oxygen consumption in young chicks. Male chicks, Single Comb White Leghorn, at 40 days of age were distributed into five experimental groups, one control group of 6 birds and four hormone-treated groups of 3 chicks. The chicks were(More)
Age dependency of triiodothyronine (T3)-induced thermogenesis of young chicks at 1 and 2 wk of age was investigated by dietary administration of .5% propylthiouracil (PTU), an inhibitor of thyroid hormone synthesis. Heat production measured by indirect calorimetry was increased by an intraperitoneal injection of T3, but the thermogenic effect was larger at(More)
