It is also unclear whether long-term prognosis differs between Graves' disease and toxic nodular goiter. Read More

    The Role of Thyrotropin Receptor Activation in Adipogenesis and Modulation of Fat Phenotype.
    Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2017 19;8:83. Epub 2017 Apr 19.
    Thyroid Research Group, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.
    Evidence from clinical and experimental data suggests that thyrotropin receptor (TSHR) signaling is involved in energy expenditure through its impact on white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT). TSHR expression increases during mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) differentiation into fat. We hypothesize that TSHR activation [TSHR*, elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone, thyroid-stimulating antibodies (TSAB), or activating mutation] influences MSC differentiation, which contributes to body composition changes seen in hypothyroidism or Graves' disease (GD).

    Association of Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) and Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) with Hyperthyroidism in Domestic Felines, Sentinels for Thyroid Hormone Disruption.
    BMC Vet Res 2017 May 3;13(1):120. Epub 2017 May 3.
    Department of Molecular Biosciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, 1089 Veterinary Medicine Dr., Davis, CA, 95616, USA.
    Background: Hyperthyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder observed in domestic felines; however, its etiology is largely unknown. Two classes of persistent organic pollutants, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are known to interfere with thyroid hormone (TH) signaling and regulation; thus, it is postulated that they contribute to the etiopathogenesis of feline hyperthyroidism and pose a risk to humans and other species. In this case-control study, the concentrations of 13 PBDE and 11 PCB congeners were measured by gas chromatography mass spectrometry in serum or plasma samples from 20 hyperthyroid and 31 control cats in order to investigate the association between concentration of PBDE and PCB congeners and feline hyperthyroidism.

    Changes in hepatic TRβ protein expression, lipogenic gene expression, and long chain acylcarnitine levels during chronic hyperthyroidism and T3 withdrawal in a mouse model.
    Thyroid 2017 Apr 29. Epub 2017 Apr 29.
    Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Cardiovascular and Metabolism Program , 8 College Road, Level 8 , Singapore, Singapore , 169857 ;
    Background: Thyroid hormone (TH) has important roles in regulating hepatic metabolism. We previously reported that most hepatic genes activated by a single T3 injection became desensitized after multiple injections, and that approximately 10% of target genes did not return to basal expression levels after T3 withdrawal despite normalization of serum TH and TSH levels. To determine the possible mechanism(s) for desensitization and incomplete recovery of hepatic target gene transcription and their effects on metabolism, we measured mRNA and/or protein expression levels of key regulators of TH action as well as metabolomic changes after chronic T3 treatment and withdrawal.

    Department of Clinical Laboratory, People's Hospital of Weifang, Weifang, Shandong, China (mainland).
    BACKGROUND Thyrotropin-secreting pituitary adenomas (TSHomas) are a rare cause of hyperthyroidism. Somatostatin analogs have proved to be effective for inhibiting pituitary hormones secretion, working via interactions with somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). Moreover, antiproliferative activity of somatostatin analog is now demonstrated in several studies. Read More

    Involvement of gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone in pubertal disorders induced by thyroid status.

    Thyroid disorders cause abnormal puberty, indicating interactions between the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) and hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axes, which are important in pubertal development. The hypothalamic gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) was shown to be decreased in the early prepubertal stage, suggesting the role of GnIH on pubertal onset. Here, we investigated whether thyroid dysfunction affects pubertal onset in female mice via GnIH regulation. Read More

    Endocrine 2017 Apr 20. Epub 2017 Apr 20.
    Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Catania, Policlinico "G. Rodolico", Via Santa Sofia 78, 95123, Catania, Italy.
    Introduction: Testis was considered unresponsive to thyroid hormone for a long time. However, like in animals, the presence of thyroid hormone receptors in different testicular cell types was demonstrated also in humans. Accordingly, thyrotoxicosis and hypothyroidism have remarkable effects on testicular function and more extensively on fertility. Read More
