Retinoic acid can enhance the stimulation by thyroid hormone of heme oxygenase activity in the liver of thyroidectomized rats.


The effects of retinoic acid (RA) (50 micrograms/100 g body wt. per day) on hepatic heme oxygenase activity, delta-aminolevulinate synthase (ALAS) activity and on cytochrome P-450 content were determined in thyroidectomized rats treated with T3 (10 micrograms/100 g body wt. per day) or diluent. RA, when administered for 3 days, failed to influence… (More)
