A role for thyroid hormones in the regulation of the rhythmic expression of circadian clock genes is suggested by the finding that surgical removal of the thyroid gland alters circadian behavioral and endocrine rhythms in rodents. Virtually nothing is known about the role of thyroid hormones in the regulation of clock genes responsible for the generation of circadian rhythmicity. To study this issue, we assessed in rats the effect of thyroidectomy/parathyrodectomy (TPX) on the expression of the… CONTINUE READING
