The three deiodinase selenoenzymes are key regulators of intracellular thyroid hormone (TH) levels. The two TH-activating deiodinases (D1 and D2) are normally expressed in follicular thyroid cells and contribute to the overall TH production. During thyroid tumorigenesis, the deiodinase expression profile changes to customize intracellular TH levels to different requirements of cancer cells. Differentiated thyroid cancers overexpress the TH-inactivating D3, likely to reduce the TH signaling within the tumor. Strikingly, recent evidences suggest that during the late-stage of thyroid tumorigenesis D2 expression raises and this, together with a reduction in D3 expression levels, increases TH intracellular signaling in dedifferentiated thyroid cancers. These findings call into question the different function of TH on the various stages of thyroid cancers.
Endocrine-Related Cancer is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
