Thyroid glands: novel sites of growth hormone action.


Thyroid hormones inhibit the synthesis and release of GH in avian species. This may represent a feedback mechanism, since GH enhances the peripheral production of tri-iodothyronine (T3). The possibility that GH may also have direct effects on thyroidal function was therefore investigated. The basal and thyrotrophin-induced release of thyroxine (T4) from… (More)
