A comparison of changes in plasma thyrotropin beta- and alpha-subunits, and mouse thyrotropic tumor thyrotropin beta- and alpha-subunit mRNA concentrations after in vivo dexamethasone or T3 administration.

Abstract

Dexamethasone, like T3, inhibits the production of TSH. T3 inhibits TSH synthesis by reducing transcription of the genes encoding TSH-beta and alpha-subunits. Little information is available concerning the effects of dexamethasone on the individual subunits, or the combined effects of dexamethasone with T3. In a preliminary study, hypothyroid mice bearing… (More)
