Influence of thyroid hormone on norepinephrine metabolism in rat brain during maturation.

Abstract

The effect of thyroid hormone on norepinephrine (NE) metabolism was investigated in various regions of the developing rat brain. Neonatal hypothyroidism, induced by daily propylthiouracil injection starting at birth, caused an increase in NE levels in the brain stem and hypothalamus. The turnover of brain NE, as indicated by its rate of depletion following… (More)
