Effects of administration of tri-iodothyronine on the response of cardiac and renal pyruvate dehydrogenase complex to starvation for 48 h.

Abstract

Effects of administration of tri-iodothyronine (T3) on activities of cardiac and renal pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (active form, PDHa) were investigated. In fed rats, T3 treatment did not affect cardiac or renal PDHa activity, although blood non-esterified fatty acid and ketone-body concentrations were increased. Starvation (48 h) of both control and T3… (More)
