The effects of hydrocortisone on iodide uptake and DNA synthesis were studied in porcine thyroid cells cultured in phenol red-free medium supplemented with low concentrations (0-1%) of charcoal-stripped fetal calf serum. Hydrocortisone dose-dependently stimulated TSH-induced iodide uptake at physiological concentrations (1-1000 nM), and the minimum… CONTINUE READING
