  • Abstract  The thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) play key roles in regulating development, growth and metabolism in pre‐ and postnatal life. Iodide (I−) is an essential component of the thyroid hormones and is accumulated avidly by the thyroid gland. The rarity of elemental iodine and I− in the environment challenges the thyroid to orchestrate a remarkable series of transport processes that ultimately ensure sufficient levels for hormone synthesis. In addition to actively… CONTINUE READING
