A decline in serum thyroxine (T4) occurs in Nya: NYLAR female mice infected with Toxoplasma gondii. To ascertain whether the hypothyroxinaemia might be the result of primary thyroid dysfunction, 2 parameters of thyrofollicular cell function were monitored to determine (a) if the cell surface membrane receptors for thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) were operative, and (b) whether the cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent cascade of intracellular events leading to the release of T4 was… CONTINUE READING
