by removal of one iodine atom from the outer ring of T 4 (outer-ring deiodination) in tissues outside the thyroid gland, such as the liver, kidney, muscle, and nervous system. The deiodination reaction is catalyzed by deiodinase enzymes. Two

, respectively. Deiodinases and TH concentrations in the cortex Thyroid follicular cell secretion consists almost entirely of T 4 , with only 5–10% of secreted iodothyronines in the form of T 3 . The majority of T 3 is formed from T 4 in tissues

triiodothyronine (T3) and reverse T3 (rT3) levels in normal fetal sheep ( Polk 1995 ) (A). The prepartum surge is driven by the prepartum cortisol surge stimulating deiodinase expression and conversion from T4. Cortisol stimulates D1 activity and suppresses D3

of the HPT axis ( Ahima & Flier 2000 , Seoane et al . 2000 ). Several studies have demonstrated that leptin modulates thyroid function, acting at the hypothalamus, pituitary and thyroid. Leptin also modulates the activity of 5′-deiodinases ( Yu et

thyroid hormone plays a key role in testicular development. Interestingly, the presence of iodothyronine deiodinases, enzymes that modulate the concentration, and thus the actions of thyroid hormones in different tissues were also identified in the rodent

largely determined by the activities of deiodinase enzymes in specific tissues ( Polk 1995 ). For most of gestation, thyroxine (T 4 ) is metabolized to reverse-T 3 , which is biologically inactive, by deiodinase type 3 (D3) activity in the placenta and

regulatory mechanisms, the ligand itself can be modified e.g. via the action of deiodinases ( Piehl et al. 2011 , Gereben et al. 2015 ). The combined action of THR together with its ligand regulates a wide variety of TH target genes via TH response
