Evidence for extrathyroidal formation of 3-iodothyronamine in humans as provided by a novel monoclonal antibody-based chemiluminescent serum immunoassay.Hoefig, C S; Köhrle, J; Brabant, Georg E; Dixit, Kashinath C S; Yap, Beng K; Strasburger, C J; Wu, Z; Institut für Experimentelle Endokrinologie, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany. (2011-06)Thyronamines are thyronergic metabolites of thyroid hormones. Lack of reliable and sensitive detection methods for endogenous 3-iodothyronamine (3-T(1)AM) has so far hampered progress in understanding their physiological action and role in endocrine homeostasis or pathophysiology of diseases.
Plasma bile acids are associated with energy expenditure and thyroid function in humans.Ockenga, J; Valentini, L; Schuetz, T; Wohlgemuth, F; Glaeser, S; Omar, A; Kasim, E; duPlessis, D; Featherstone, K; Davis, J R; et al. (2012-02)Animal studies implicate a role of bile acids (BA) in thyroid-regulated energy expenditure (EE) via activation of the TGR-5/adenylate cyclase/deiodinase type 2 pathway. Here we investigated these possible associations in humans.
