The effects of TSH and the activation of the cyclic AMP (cAMP) and Ca2+-phosphatidylinositol (Ca2+-PI) cascades on the activity and expression of the selenoenzyme thyroidal type-I iodothyronine deiodinase (ID-I) have been studied using human thyrocytes grown in primary culture. Stimulation of ID-I activity and expression was obtained with TSH and an analogue of cAMP, 8-bromo-cAMP. In the presence or absence of TSH, the addition of the phorbol ester, phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) together with the calcium ionophore A23187, caused a decrease in ID-I activity; a decrease in ID-I expression was also observed as assessed by cell labelling with [75 Se]selenite. PMA alone had no effect on ID-I activity in the presence or absence of TSH. A23187 alone produced a small but significant reduction in ID-I activity, but only in TSH-stimulated cells. These data provide evidence that the expression of thyroidal ID-I is negatively regulated by the Ca2+-PI cascade, and positively regulated by the cAMP cascade.
Journal of Molecular Endocrinology is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
