Activity of T3–Responsive α–Glycerophosphate Dehydrogenase (α–GPD) and the Characteristics of Nuclear T3–Binding in the Male and Female Rat
The present study explores the possible sex-related difference in the metabolic effects of thyroid hormones by studying the activity of the liver mitochondrial T3–responsive α–glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (α–GPD). In parallel experiments we characterized the liver nuclear T3–receptors in male and female rats. We also attempted to determine whether such differences are related to the different sex-hormone content.
