Thiocyanate feeding with low iodine diet causes chronic iodine retention in thyroids of mice.


Effects of KSCN on thyroidal iodine metabolism were studied in weanling mice fed a low iodide diet (LID) labeled continuously with 125I as iodide. The addition of KSCN (0.3 and 0.6 mg/g diet) resulted in the accumulation of an unusual iodinated protein within the follicles of the mouse thyroids. After 60 days, total thyroidal iodine was 4 times greater than… (More)
