Triiodothyronine affects the alternative splicing of thyroid hormone receptor alpha mRNA.

Abstract

The c-erbAalpha gene encodes two thyroid hormone receptors, TRalpha1 and TRalpha2, that arise from alternative splicing of the TRalpha pre-mRNA. TRalpha2 is not able to bind triiodothyronine (T(3)) and acts as a weak antagonist of TRs. It has been suggested that the balance of TRalpha1 to TRalpha2 is important in maintaining homeostasis. Here, we study the… (More)
