Plasma concentrations of thyroxine (T4) and growth hormone (GH) were measured in the developing bandicoot from 21 through to 69 days post partum. Thyroxine concentrations increased from 7 ng mL(-1) at 21 days post partum to reach a maximum of around 40 ng mL(-1) approximately 40 days post partum. After this time, plasma T4 concentrations decreased until about 50 days post partum, when levels were not different from those in the adult (9.2 +/- 0.7 ng mL(-1), n = 10). In contrast, GH… CONTINUE READING
