An analysis has been carried out on the contents and reciprocal proportions of three principal iodothyronines (T4, T3 and rT3) in the thyroids of fed and fasted piglets of 8-10 wk and in adult pigs. The mean T4 concentration averaged 62.0 +/- nmol/100 mg wet tissue (in adults: 18.5 +/- 4.3 nmol/100 mg tissue); T3, 9.5 +/- 0.9 nmol/100 mg tissue (in adults… CONTINUE READING
