DURING the enzymic de-iodination of thyroxine labelled with iodine-131, triiodothyronine and related compounds with tissue homogenates, a fraction of the radioactivity consistently appeared in a material of RF = 0 in various chromatographic systems1. The amount of ‘origin’ radioactive material found on chromatograms increased almost in parallel with the de… CONTINUE READING
