Title: Role of the Pineal Body Hormone in Thyroid Function; L'HORMONE EPIPHSAIRE INTERVIENT DANS LA DYNAMIQUE DU METABOLISME DE L'IODE

Abstract

To evaluate the action of the pineal body hormone on thyroid function, hyperactivity of the epiphysis was experimentally induced by administering pineal body hormone four hours before the experiment and then every four hours during the experiment. Iodine tagging was achieved by the intraperltoneal injection of carrierless'' I/sup 131/. The animals, which had been divided into batches of 10, were sacrificed every 2 hours until 48 hours had elapsed following the radioactive tagging. Measurements on the radioactivity of the thyroid and of the blood were carried out in vitro. The values obtained were used in order to draw up simultaneous radioactivity curves applicable to the total radioactivity and to that attributable to inorganic and organic iodine, respectively. The curves showing the variation in the radioactivity reveal a delayed action of the pineal gland hormone which is different according to whether the functional thyroid units have a large or small time constant.
