-Synthetic thyroid hormone that increases cellular metabolism and plays an important role in growth, development, CNS and bone functions, food metabolism and body temperature.
- Thyroid hormones, T(3) and T(4), are thought to act by binding to thyroid receptor proteins attached to DNA, thus activating gene transcription and protein synthesis.
- The physiological activities of thyroid hormones are produced primarily by T(3), and approximately 80% of T(3) is derived from T4 by deiodination in peripheral tissues
