Introduction The iodothyronine deiodinases are selenoenzymes that modulate tri-iodothyronine (T 3 ) concentrations by catalyzing both its production and degradation ( Bianco et al . 2002 , Gereben et al . 2008 ). Thyroxine (T 4 ) is activated via

Local control of thyroid hormone action: role of type 2 deiodinase

Deiodinases: the balance of thyroid hormone

Graham R Williams and J H Duncan Bassett

3 is catalyzed by the type 2 iodothyronine deiodinase enzyme (DIO2), while the type 3 enzyme (DIO3) prevents activation of T 4 and inactivates T 3 . This pre-receptor control of ligand availability to TRs in target cells is a crucial mechanism that

Introduction The iodothyronine deiodinases types 1, 2, and 3 (D1, D2, and D3) constitute a family of oxidoreductases that catalyze the removal of iodine from the outer ring (D1 and D2, activation) or inner ring (D3, inactivation) of

interference of the so-called iodothyronine deiodinases. Three different deiodinases (type I iodothyronine deiodinase (D1), type II iodothyronine deiodinase (D2) and type III iodothyronine deiodinase (D3)) have been cloned and characterized for different

and exert its full biologic activity. This activation, as well a s the inactivation of thyroid hormones, occurs not in the thyroid, but in the periphery through the action of iodothyronine deiodinases ( Eales & Brown 1993 , Mol et al. 1997 , 1998

) respectively. Based on several functional criteria and molecular characterization, three distinct deiodinase enzymes have been identified: type 1 (D1), type 2 (D2), and type 3 (D3). D1 seems to be the only selenodeiodinase that can function as either an outer

Introduction Thyroxine (T 4 ), a major secretory product of the thyroid gland, needs to be converted to tri-iodothyronine (T 3 ) to exert its biological activity. Two isoenzymes, types 1 and 2 iodothyronine deiodinase (D1 and D2

(D1) and type 2 (D2) deiodinases. Both enzymes remove one iodine atom from position 5′ of the T 4 outer ring, giving rise to T 3 ( Bianco et al. 2002 , Kohrle 2002 ). These enzymes have been cloned and biochemically and molecularly characterized

-hormone thyroxine (T 4 ), and only about 20% of the active hormone, T 3 . T 4 is largely inactive until it is deiodinated to T 3 by the type 1 (D1) or 2 (D2) deiodinase. This reaction produces about 80% of the T 3 present in the circulation in healthy subjects. A
