Molecular insights into the possible role of Kir4.1 and Kir5.1 in thyroid hormone biosynthesis.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Thyroid morphogenesis is a complex process. Inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) genes play a role in hormone release, cell excitability, pH and K(+) homeostasis in many tissues. OBJECTIVES To investigate the thyroid developmental expression of three members, Kir4.1, Kir4.2 and Kir5.1, in mice. To postulate the K(+) channel role in thyroid… (More)
