Binding of triiodothyronine by fully differentiated rat enterocytes.

The cellular binding characteristics of triiodothyronine (T3) have been measured in a preparation of isolated fully differentiated enterocytes prepared from thyroidectomized rats. Specific binding of [125I]T3, defined as that portion displaced by the presence of 20 microM-non-radioactive hormone, was shown to become maximal after 100 min incubation with… CONTINUE READING
