Various indices of thyroid function were measured in rats at early (2 to 26 days) and at late (up to 55 weeks) intervals after the onset of an iodine deficient diet (LID). Control groups received the same diet with iodine-supplemented drinking water. The measurements included: thyroid total 127I concentration, thyroid weight, [131i] mit/[131i]dit and(More)
The hyt/hyt mouse (BALB/cBY-hyt, C.hytRF) provides a useful model for exploring the effect of inherited severe primary hypothyroidism. Studies were undertaken to try to define the basis of the primary hypothyroidism in mice homozygous for the autosomal recessive gene, hyt. These mice had congenital hypothyroidism of fetal onset after 15 days post(More)
In the course of experiments on iodine deficiency induced by Remington diets in rats, we observed that the Remington diet supplied by ICN Nutritional Laboratories, though very deficient in iodine (less than 20 micrograms I/kg), did not lead to the rapid loss of thyroid iodine and the rapid decrease in serum T4 expected on the basis of previous studies with(More)
Male rats of five different strains (Simonsen albino, Wistar, Long-Evans, Holtzman Sprague-Dawley, and Charles River Sprague-Dawley) were tested for their response to the U.S. Biochemical Corp. Remington low iodine diet containing 15-18 microgram I/kg. Measurements made after the diet had been fed for 28-30 days indicated that Simonsen albino and Wistar(More)
The aim of this work was to study the role of the dorsal noradrenergic ascending pathway (DNAP), which originates in the locus coeruleus (LC) on the preovulatory surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and prolactin (PRL) by producing bilateral electrolytic lesions (cathodal or anodal) in this nucleus. LC lesions were placed at(More)
