Dynamics and regulation of intracellular thyroid hormone concentrations in embryonic chicken liver, kidney, brain, and blood.


The intracellular thyroid hormone (TH) availability is influenced by different metabolic pathways. We investigated the relationship between tissue and plasma TH levels as well as the correlation with changes of deiodination and sulfation during chicken embryonic development. From day 14 until day 19, T3 remains unchanged in liver and kidney in spite of… (More)
