Modulation of thyroid hormone nuclear receptor levels by L-triiodothyronine (T3) in the rat pituitary.


The concentration of thyroid hormone nuclear receptors varies from one tissue to another, the anterior pituitary (AP) gland possessing the highest. Since 3,5,3',1-triiodothyronine (T3) controls within a narrow range the secretion of TSH from the pituitary gland, this study was carried out to establish whether T3 modulates its own pituitary nuclear receptors… (More)
