The human fetal retinal pigment epithelium: A target tissue for thyroid hormones.


Thyroid hormone (T(3)) has previously been shown to regulate visual function in experimental animals and humans. To determine if T(3) exerts direct effects on retinal function, cultured human fetal retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells were tested for the presence of thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) and T(3) responses. Using TR-isoform-specific reverse… (More)
