Abstract

Thyroid-stimulating hormone increased the cyclic 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate concentration in dog thyroid slices during a 1-minute incubation period and produced a maximum effect soon thereafter. The elevation persisted for at least 30 minutes. The concentrations of the cyclic 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate increased as the TSH concentration was increased from 0.125 to 50 milliunits per milliliter. Prostaglandin E1, which increases glucose oxidation in dog thyroid slices, also increased the concentration of cyclic 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate. Although sodium fluoride stimulates thyroid adenyl cyclase, it did not increase concentration of cyclic 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate. Carbamylcholine and menadiol sodium diphosphate augment glucose oxidation in dog thyroid slices but do not change concentrations of cyclic 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate.
