Reverse T3

Hatef Talebi, Mohammad Reza Farahpour
This study is aimed to analyse the cross-link between cyclin D1, cdk-4, p21, PCNA and DNA damage during different periods of reperfusion following experimental torsion in rats. Thirty mature male Wistar rats (N = 6) were used. Following 4 hr from torsion induction, the reperfusion was induced. Animals were subdivided into groups, including 4 hr torsion-induced (T1), 1 hr post-reperfusion (T2), 2 hr post-reperfusion (T3), 4 hr post-reperfusion (T4) and 8 hr post-reperfusion (T5) groups. The seminiferous tubules differentiation (TDI) and spermatogenesis indices were evaluated...

RATIONALE: Brain-dead (BD) organ donors frequently exhibit hemodynamic instability and/or reversible cardiac dysfunction. Retrospective studies have suggested that thyroid hormone may stabilize hemodynamics and enhance myocardial recovery. Intravenous levothyroxine (T4) is most frequently utilized but studies have suggested that triiodothyronine (T3) may be superior. We performed a randomized comparative-effectiveness trial to address this uncertainty in donor management. METHODS: All heart-eligible donors managed at a single OPO underwent standardized fluid resuscitation...

RATIONALE: 4,4'-methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) is a highly reactive isocyanate used in the production of polyurethanes. Workers exposed to these products may develop sensitization to the diisocyanate compounds, leading to occupational asthma. Quantifying MDI levels is necessary to ensure workplace safety. MDI is metabolized by acetylation and/or conjugation to macromolecules for excretion into urine. All metabolites can be chemically hydrolysed to form the free diamine 4,4'-methylenedianiline (MDA) as a urinary biomarker of MDI exposure...

In the context of genomic thyroid hormone actions in normal (noncancer) cells that involve primary interactions with nuclear thyroid hormone receptors (TRs), L-thyroxine (T4), and 3,3',5'-triiodo-L-thyronine (reverse T3, rT3) have little bioactivity. In terms of TRs, T4 is a prohormone from which the active nuclear ligand, 3,5,3'-triido-L-thyronine (T3), is generated by deiodination. Deaminated T4 and T3 metabolites have different genomic effects: tetraiodothyroacetic acid (tetrac) is a low grade thyromimetic derivative of T4, whereas triiodothyroacetic acid (triac), the acetic acid metabolite of T3, has substantial thyromimetic activity...

Resiniferatoxin (RTX), a selective transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) receptor agonist, can eliminate TRPV1+ primary sensory afferents and blunt cardiac sympathetic afferent reflex for a relatively long period. The present study determined the effects of intrathecal RTX administration on transverse aortic constriction (TAC)-induced cardiac dysfunction and cardiac remodeling in rats. Five days before TAC, RTX (2 μg/10 μl) was injected intrathecally into the T2/T3 interspace of rats. Cardiac sympathetic nerve activities (CSNAs) and cardiac structure and function were determined eight weeks after TAC...

PURPOSE: Underwater divers face several potential neurological hazards when breathing compressed gas mixtures including nitrogen narcosis which can impact diver's safety. Various human studies have clearly demonstrated brain impairment due to nitrogen narcosis in divers at 4 ATA using critical flicker fusion frequency (CFFF) as a cortical performance indicator. However, recently some authors have proposed a probable adaptive phenomenon during repetitive exposure to high nitrogen pressure in rats, where they found a reversal effect on dopamine release...
