We measured low substrate (<1 nM) thyroid hormone (TH) deiodination activities in liver, muscle, intestine, and brain microsomes of Atlantic hagfish fasted for 2 weeks and found extremely low thyroxine (T(4)) outer-ring deiodination (T(4)ORD) and inner-ring deiodination (T(4)IRD) as well as 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine (T(3)) IRD activities. T(3)ORD, 3',5'-triiodothyronine (rT(3)) ORD and rT(3)IRD activities were undetectable. Hagfish deiodinating pathways resembled those of teleosts in requiring a… CONTINUE READING
