Discussion: Although BIP activation has been shown in vitro in thyroid cells, no difference was determined in our study in anti-BIP levels between the HT patient subgroups and the control group.
2006) PAX8-peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) disrupts normal PAX8 or PPARgamma transcriptional function and stimulates follicular thyroid cell growth.
Because perchlorate inhibits iodide uptake, we focused on the genetic defects causing CH involving the iodination process of the THs, particularly a) defects in iodide transport from circulation into the thyroid cell; b) defects in iodide transport from the thyroid cell to the follicular lumen, often combined with inner ear deafness [Pendred syndrome (PDS)]; and c) defects of iodide organification.

TTF1 and PAX8 are implicated in proliferation and survival of thyroid cell precursors, and TTF2 plays a role in migration and proliferation of thyroid precursors.
Assuming that each thyroid cell contains -20 pg of total RNA (9), the amount of Tg mRNA detected in this assay would roughly approximate 20-25 thyroid cells per milliliter of whole blood in healthy subjects, a surprisingly large number.
