Retinoic acid X receptor in the diploblast, Tripedalia cystophora.
It is shown by cDNA and gene cloning that a Cnidarian, Tripedalia cystophora, possesses a retinoid receptor (jRXR) with remarkable homology to vertebrate retinoic acid X receptors (RXRs), suggesting that RXR is an early component of the regulatory mechanisms of metazoa. Expand
Proteins associated with the thyroid hormones.
Nuclear hormone receptor CHR3 is a critical regulator of all four larval molts of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
It is shown that the levels of expression of CHR3 (nhr-23) cycle during larval development and reduction ofCHR3 function during each intermolt period result in defects at all subsequent molts, defined as a critical regulator of all C. elegans molts. Expand
CHR3: a Caenorhabditis elegans orphan nuclear hormone receptor required for proper epidermal development and molting.
CHR3 is a Caenorhabditis elegans orphan nuclear hormone receptor highly homologous to Drosophila DHR3, an ecdysone-inducible gene product involved in metamorphosis, and Gel-shift studies show that CHR3 can bind the DR5-type hormone response sequence. Expand
Occurrence and natural history of chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis in childhood.
The results suggest that lymphocytic thyroiditis in children may be present without symptoms and in many is a self-limiting disorder from which complete recovery occurs spontaneously. Expand
Thyroid nodularity in children.
Of 5,179 school children surveyed in Utah, Nevada, and Arizona for thyroid abnormalities because of possible exposure to radiation from fallout, nodularity of the thyroid was found in 98 (1.8%). InExpand
Steroid/thyroid hormone receptor genes in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Cloning three distinct members of the retinoic acid receptor (RAR), thyroid hormone receptor subfamily of genes from the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans demonstrates that the STR family of genes is represented in a nematodes whose ancestor appeared well before the branching that gave rise to the Arthropoda and Chordata.

Thyroid nodules as a late sequela of radioactive fallout, In a Marshall Island population exposed in 1954.
NODULES of the thyroid gland have been discovered during the past three years in a number of people of Rongelap Island who had been accidentally exposed to radioactive fallout in 1954. The accidentExpand
