The thyrocervical trunk in turn gives rise to the suprascapular artery, transverse cervical artery, and the inferior thyroid artery.
Thyroid hormone resistance Thyroid hormone resistance describes a rare syndrome where the thyroid hormone levels are elevated but the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is not suppressed, or not completely suppressed as would be expected.
Thyroid peroxidase Thyroid peroxidase or Thyroperoxidase (TPO) is an enzyme mainly expressed in the thyroid that liberates iodine for addition onto tyrosine residues on thyroglobulin for the production of thyroxine (T4) or triiodothyronine (T3) (thyroid hormones). This process is termed the "organification of iodine".
Thyroid transcription factor-1 Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) is a protein that regulates transcription of genes specific for the thyroid, lung, and diencephalon. It is also known as thyroid specific enhancer binding protein and NKX-2.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone Thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as TSH or thyrotropin) is a hormone synthesized and secreted by thyrotrope cells in the anterior pituitary gland which regulates the endocrine function of the thyroid gland.
Thyroidectomy A thyroidectomy involves the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland. Surgeons often perform a thyroidectomy when a patient has thyroid cancer or some other condition of the thyroid gland (such as hyperthyroidism).
Thyrotropin receptor The thyrotropin receptor (or TSH receptor) is a gene (and associated protein) which responds to thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as "thyrotropin", and stimulates the production of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).
Thyrotropin-releasing hormone Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), also called thyrotropin-releasing factor (TRF), thyroliberin or protirelin, is a tripeptide hormone that stimulates the release of thyroid-stimulating hormone and prolactin by the anterior pituitary. TRH is produced by the hypothalamus and travels across the median eminence to the pituitary via the hypophyseal portal system.
Thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor There are two known thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) receptors, TRHR1 and TRHR2 (which as yet has not been identified in humans). Both receptors are members of the 7-transmembrane, g protein coupled receptor family.
Thyroxine-binding globulin Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) is one of three proteins (along with transthyretin and albumin) responsible for carrying the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and 3,5,3â€™-triiodothyronine (T3) in the bloodstream. Of these three proteins, TBG has the highest affinity for T4 and T3, but is present in the lowest concentration.
Thyrsis Thyrsis is the title of a poem written by Matthew Arnold in December 1865 to commemorate his friend, the poet Arthur Hugh Clough, who died in November 1861 aged only 42. The character, Thyrsis, was a shepherd in Virgil's Seventh Eclogue, who lost a singing match against Corydon.
Thyrsites atun The snoek (Thyrsites atun) is a long, thin, perch-like commercial food fish of the family Gempylidae. It is found in the seas of the Southern Hemisphere, and is a popular food, It is also known in Australia as barracouta though not related nor to be confused with Barracuda.
