Secret to controlling thyroid hormone production
Originating in the thyroid, the prohormone thyroxine is converted to triiodothyronine, which is essential in brain development, growth, and metabolism. A study from researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, reveals a novel mechanism for controlling triiodothyronine production that demonstrates the first example of enzyme activity being restored by deubiquitination.
