The expression of c- erbAalpha and -beta encoded thyroid hormone receptors (TR) was investigated in rat placenta between 16 and 21 days of gestation (dg), and in fetal liver and brain at 16 dg, using semi-quantitative RT-PCR and nuclear 3,5,3'-triiodothyronine (T(3)) binding. TRalpha1, TRbeta1, c- erbAalpha 2 and c- erbAalpha 3 mRNA abundance was unchanged in placenta between 16 and 21 dg, as was the dissociation constant (K(d)) of T(3) binding. The maximal T(3) binding capacity (B(max)) in… 
Thyroid hormone action in the placenta.
Luteal expression of thyroid hormone receptors during gestation and postpartum in the rat.
TLDR
Luteal thyroid hormone receptor isoforms (TR) expression and regulation throughout pregnancy and under the influence of thyroid status are determined, and in vitro effects of triiodothyronine (T3) exposure on luteal P4 synthesis are studied.
Luteal expression of thyroid hormone receptors during gestation and postpartum in the rat.
TLDR
This study confirms for the first time the presence of TR isoforms in the CL during pregnancy and postpartum, identifying this gland as a TH target during gestation.
Gaps in the knowledge of thyroid hormones and placental biology
TLDR
Thyroid hormone transport, action, and metabolism in the placenta have important roles in controlling fetal growth both developmentally and in response to suboptimal maternal environments.
Effect of Thyromimetic GC-1 Selective Signaling on Reproductive and Lactational Performance in the Hypothyroid Rat
TLDR
The findings show the differential effect of thyroid hormone selective signaling during gestation and the indirect exposure of the pups; the plausible use of GC-1 for treatment of hypothyroid mothers during the lactation period is emphasized.

TLDR
The findings that D 3 activity is very high in the pregnant uterus and fetoplacental unit, and that D3-deficient mice exhibit deficits in growth, viability, and fertility strongly suggest that D2 plays an important role in development.
The role of thyroid hormones in placental and fetal central nervous system development
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms controlling the delivery and actions of thyroid hormones to the fetus are outlined and organs, such as the central nervous system, appear to be exquisitely sensitive to their actions.
Paradigms of Dynamic Control of Thyroid Hormone Signaling.
TLDR
The key mechanisms underlying customization of TH signaling during development, in health and in disease states are explored, which explains how THs can regulate pathways in development, metabolism and growth, despite rather stable levels in the circulation.
Thyroid hormone regulates the expression of &agr;-internexin in neurons in culture
TLDR
T3 at a physiological level, stimulates &agr;-IN protein, but not mRNA, levels in early differentiating neurons in culture, which supports the hypothesis that maternal thyroid hormone directly regulates early neuronal differentiation.

Thyroid hormone receptor gene expression in first trimester human fetal brain.
TLDR
Findings point to an important role for the TRalpha1 isoform in mediating maternal thyroid hormone action during first trimester human fetal brain development.
Differential and tissue-specific regulation of the multiple rat c-erbA messenger RNA species by thyroid hormone.
TLDR
The present work examines the molecular nature of T3 receptor autoregulation using probes specific for each c-erbA mRNA to find that changes in the mRNAs encoding specific subpopulations of T 3 receptors do not always parallel changes in total nuclear T3 binding.
Independent Expression of the α and β c-erbA Genes in Developing Rat Brain
TLDR
Using cRNA probes common to α transcripts or specific for α-1 and β-1, this work has studied the distribution of these transcripts in rat brain at different stages of development from embryonic day 14 to adult age by using in situ hybridization histochemistry.
Evaluation of the ontogeny of thyroid hormone receptor isotypes in rat brain and liver using an immunohistochemical technique.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that each TR isoform is expressed in rat brain from 14 days of gestation and that the alpha isoform was predominant in the early stage and the expression of TRs in hepatocytes becomes evident later.
The early ontogenesis of thyroid hormone receptor in the rat fetus.
TLDR
The results suggest that the appearance of the thyroid hormone receptor coincides with that of the first fetal thyroid gland structures, but that it occurs much before thyroid function is fully established.
Identification of a thyroid hormone receptor that is pituitary-specific.
TLDR
The presence of a pituitary-specific form of the thyroid hormone receptor that may be selectively regulated by thyroid hormone could be important for the differential regulation of gene expression by T3 in the pituitsary gland.
Effects of maternal hypothyroidism on the weight and thyroid hormone content of rat embryonic tissues, before and after onset of fetal thyroid function.
TLDR
Results show that maternal hypothyroidism is accompanied by thyroid hormone deficiency of the conceptus before the fetal thyroid functions, and alterations of T4 and T3 concentrations persist until term, and development is also delayed.
Maternal hypothyroxinemia influences glucose transporter expression in fetal brain and placenta.
TLDR
Maternal hypothyroxinemia results in fetal growth retardation and impaired brain development before the onset of fetal thyroid function, and these deficits are present during the critical period of neuroblast proliferation and may contribute to long term changes in brain development and function seen in this model and in the progeny of Hypothyroxinemic women.
