Contrasting skeletal phenotypes in mice with an identical mutation targeted to thyroid hormone receptor alpha1 or beta.

Abstract

Thyroid hormone (T(3)) regulates bone turnover and mineralization in adults and is essential for skeletal development. Surprisingly, we identified a phenotype of skeletal thyrotoxicosis in T(3) receptor beta(PV) (TRbeta(PV)) mice in which a targeted frameshift mutation in TRbeta results in resistance to thyroid hormone. To characterize mechanisms underlying… (More)
