Effects of maternal hypothyroidism on the weight and thyroid hormone content of rat embryonic tissues, before and after onset of fetal thyroid function.

Abstract

Embryonic tissues were obtained from normal (C) and thyroidectomized (T) rats between 9 and 21 days of pregnancy. We determined the number and weight, as well as the T4 and T3 contents (RIA), of 9- to 12-day-old embryotrophoblasts, of 13- to 21-day-old embryos and placentas, and of liver, lung, and brain from 20- and 21-day-old fetuses. T4 and T3 were found… (More)
