Thyroxine Reversibly Inhibits the Uncoupling Action of Protonophores on Energy Production in Rat Thymus Lymphocytes

Abstract

Earlier we reported that some thyroid and steroid hormones and also 6-ketocholestanol used in micromolar concentrations modulated the effects of protonophoric uncouplers on isolated mitochondria (Starkov et al. (1997) Biochim. Biophys. Acta, 1318, 173-183). In the present study we investigated the effects of a thyroid hormone, thyroxine, on energy coupling… (More)
