In vitro inhibition of thyroid hormone sulfation by hydroxylated metabolites of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons.


Earlier studies in our laboratory showed that hydroxylated metabolites of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) competitively inhibit thyroxine (T4) binding to transthyretin (TTR) and type I deiodinase (D1) activity. In this study, we investigated the possible inhibitory effects of hydroxylated metabolites of… (More)
