Biochem/physiol Actions

3,3′,5-Triiodo-L-thyronine also referred to as O-(4-Hydroxy-3-iodophenyl)-3,5-diiodo-L-tyrosine or T3 is the biologically active thyroid hormone. In hypothyroidism pateints, triiodothyronine enhances mood and neuropsychological function. The product also positively regulates the hepatic FGF21 expression and stimulates the metabolic breakdown of glucose, fats, and proteins by enhancing the levels of numerous metabolic enzymes such as hexokinase, liver glucose 6-phosphatase as well as mitochondrial enzymes for oxidative phosphorylation. Additionally, the product facilitates the normal body growth in children and is pivotal for central nervous system maturation in foetus.

Preparation Note

3,3′,5-Triiodo-L-thyronine dissolves in 4M NH4OH in MeOH at 5 mg/ml to yield a colorless to light yellow, clear to very slightly hazy solution.

Patients lacking the thyroid hormone (TH) transporter MCT8 present abnormal serum levels of TH: low thyroxine and high triiodothyronine. They also have severe neurodevelopmental defects resulting from cerebral hypothyroidism, most likely due to impaired TH transport across the brain barriers.

Patients with hypothyroidism are usually treated with thyroxine (levothyroxine) only, although both thyroxine and triiodothyronine are secreted by the normal thyroid gland. Whether thyroid secretion of triiodothyronine is physiologically important is unknown. We compared the effects of thyroxine alone with
