Abstract:Iodolipids are the possible mediators of excess iodide in thyroid autoregulation. Previous work from our laboratory has shown that 14-iodo-15-hydroxy-5,8,11 eicosatrienoic acid (I-HO-A) and its omega lactone (IL-w) mimic the inhibitory action of excess iodide upon several parameters of thyroid metabolism. The present experiments were performed in order to study the mechanism of the inhibitory effect of I-HO-A and IL-w on 2-deoxy-D-glucose (DOG) and aminoisobutyric acid (AIB) uptake by calf slices. I-HO-A, IL-w… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
