The trace elements selenium and iodine are both essential for normal thyroid hormone metabolism. To investigate the relationships between these functions, heifers were maintained on iodine-deficient or iodine-sufficient diets from mid pregnancy to term. In these heifers and their offspring the interrelationship between iodine and selenium was apparent with the preferential 10- to 12-fold induction of the selenoenzyme, thyroidal type I, selenium-containing iodothyronine deiodinase activity by… CONTINUE READING
