Influence of thyroparathyroidectomy and thyroxine replacement on CU and ZN cellular distribution and on the metallothionein level and induction in rats


Thyroid hormones are involved in copper and zinc distribution in rat tissues. We examined the influence of thyroparathyroidectomy (TPTY) and of a replacement therapy by T4 on Cu and Zn organ distribution. MT levels were also measured both in basal conditions and after induction by cadmium. The results confirm that a lack of T4 modified Cu and Zn in serum… (More)
