Effect of thyrotropin on conversion of T4 to T3 in perfused rat liver.

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to elucidate the direct effect of thyrotropin (TSH) on the conversion of thyroxine (T4) to 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine (T3) in the isolated perfused rat liver. The liver was perfused without recirculation with a synthetic medium containing 10 micrograms/dl T4 and the effect of constant infusion of bovine TSH (125 or 250 microU… (More)
