We studied hepatic sulfation of thyroid hormones (TH) in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss. Sulfation of thyroxine (T4) and 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine (T3) was detected in the cytosolic (63-67%), microsomal (12-16%), nuclear (12-14%) and mitochondrial/lysosomal (7-8%) fractions. Using 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS) as a sulfate donor, sulfation… CONTINUE READING
