Thiocyanate is a ubiquitous metabolite in man and animals consuming plants containing cyanogenic glycosides and thioglycosides (glucionates) while iodine is present in the earth crust since its origin and is an essential constituent of thyroid hormone requires in trace amount. Iodine is essential for thyroid hormone synthesis while thiocyanate prevents the synthesis of thyroid hormone. As a result the physiological rather functional status of thyroid is very much dependent on the balance… Expand

Iodine, Thiocyanate and the Thyroid
Thiocyanate is a ubiquitous metabolite in man and animals consuming plants containing cyanogenic glycosides and thioglycosides (glucionates) while iodine is present in the earth crust since itsExpand
Opposite effects of thiocyanate on tyrosine iodination and thyroid hormone synthesis.
TLDR
Data provide further support in favour of the existence of an enzyme-iodide (or SCN-) complex with catalytic properties different from those of the native peroxidase. Expand
Thiocyanate feeding with low iodine diet causes chronic iodine retention in thyroids of mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that when mouse thyroids are iodine depleted, thiocyanate increases the formation of an essentially insoluble iodinated thyroglobulin within the thyroid. Expand
Examination of antithyroid effects of smoking products in cultured thyroid follicles: only thiocyanate is a potent antithyroid agent.
TLDR
The data of iodide transport kinetics suggest that thiocyanate can be an antithyroid agent particularly in iodine deficiency. Expand
The kinetics of the inhibition of thyroidal iodide accumulation by thiocyanate: a reexamination.
TLDR
In addition to probable inhibition of intrathyroidal recirculation of I-1, NaSCN may affect the permeability of thyroid cells to I-. Expand
Iodine metabolism in response to goitrogen induced altered thyroid status under conditions of moderate and high intake of iodine.
TLDR
Moderate intake of iodine, adequate to meet iodine requirement, may not ensure normal functioning of thyroid in the presence of goitrogens. Expand
Intake of thiocyanate by way of milk and its possible effect on thyroid function.
TLDR
A daily intake of 8 mg thiocyanate by way of milk does not have any apparent effect on the thyroid function, and no significant changes were found during the experimental period. Expand
Goitrogenic content of Indian cyanogenic plant foods & their in vitro anti-thyroidal activity.
TLDR
Raw, boiled and cooked extracts of the plants showed anti-thyroidal activity in vitro, and excess iodide reversed the anti-TPO activity to same extent but could not neutralise it. Expand
Effect of cassava ( Manihot esculenta crentz ) on thyroid status under conditions of varying iodine intake in rats
Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz), a widely used common vegetable of Indian origin contains dietary goitrogens. Goitrogenic content, in vitro anti-thyroidal activity and in vivo antithyroidExpand

TLDR
Sulfur-containing phytochemicals of two different kinds are present in all Brassica oleracea (Cruciferae) vegetables and these compounds show quite different toxicological effects and appear to possess anticarcinogenic properties. Expand
