The thyroid function in development was investigated in post-natal rats. The thyroid iodine content rapidly increased from birth (137 +/- 26 ng iodine/mg thyroid) up to day 10 (338 +/- 42 ng iodine/mg thyroid) then increased more slowly up to day 30 (425 +/- 34 ng iodine/mg thyroid). The maximal plasma concentration of thyroxine was observed on day 16 (56.9 +/- 3.5 ng T4/ml) and of iodide on day 10 (110.2 +/- 12.6 ng I-/ml). The turnover rate constant of extrathyroidal thyroxine was higher at… CONTINUE READING
