  1. 1. In silico Identification of Thyroid Disrupting Chemicals : among industrial chemicals and household dust contaminants

    Author : Jin Zhang; Patrik Andersson; A. Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson; Liang-Hong Guo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Thyroid disruption chemicals; virtual screening; tranthyretin; thyroid hormone receptor; QSAR modeling; molecular docking; molecular dynamics;

    Abstract : Thyroid disruptions by xenobiotics have been associated with a broad spectrum of severe adverse human health effects, such as impaired brain development and metabolic syndrome. Ingestion of indoor dust and contact with industrial chemicals are two significant human exposure routes of thyroid hormone disrupting chemicals (THDCs), raising serious concerns for human health.

  2. 2. Life without thyroid hormone receptors

    Author : Sten Göthe; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thyroid hormone (TH) has many important functions during development and in the adult individual. It reaches its target cells via the blood system and binds its receptor (TR) located within the cell nucleus where the receptor regulates target genes. This hormone-mediated gene regulation is a finely tuned interplay of numerous parameters. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thyroid hormone receptor expression in cardiovascular disease and pharmacology

    Author : Shiva Shahrara; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; TR mRNA; amiodarone; propranolol; heart rate; Quantitative RT-PCR; Western blot; Northern blot; mRNA and protein distribution; chronic valvular disease; Mated cardiomyopathy; AT- I cardiomyocytes; mouse myocardium;

    Abstract : The heart is a major target organ for thyroid hormone actions. Thyroid hormone exerts effects on the myocardium, which are mediated by specific nuclear receptors. The thyroid hormone receptors (TR) are members of the steroid hormone receptor superfamily. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thyroid hormone receptors in liver metabolism

    Author : Hjalmar Gullberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thyroid hormone has a profound impact on mammalian metabolism; hypothyroidism causes decreased metabolic rate and increased serum cholesterol levels. One major target organ for the hormone is the liver, the most important metabolic organ in mammals, that balances anabolism of carbohydrates and lipids against catabolism. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recurrent unexplained first-trimester miscarriage. Effects of acetylcalicylic acid, platelet aggregation and thyroid disease

    Author : Lennart Blomqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
