The aim of the present work was to investigate the role of triiodothyronine on liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy in the rat. During the first 3 days of liver regeneration, total protein, total DNA content and total cytochrome c oxidase activity of the residual tissue increased from 30% immediately after partial hepatectomy to 70% of the preoperative values in control rats. In triiodothyronine-treated rats, the increase in total protein was the same (70%), however, the increase in… CONTINUE READING
