Influence of immobilization stress on the level of secretion of thyroid hormones
- 35 Downloads
The immobilization of rats for 2 min with repetition after 3 min induces a significant increase in the secretion of thyroid hormones.
This increase in secretion is abolished by the administration of the α-blocker prazosin 1 h before exposure.
The acute stress induced by repeated immobilization increases the activity of the thyroid conversion of T4.
