Abstract

In autoradiographic experiments using [125I] after removal of the pineal gland accumulation of iodine in the thyroid gland of rats is increased, whereas melatonin has contrary effects. The effect of serotonin equals that of pinealectomy, making thus likely that apart from stopping the supply of melatonin, pinealectomy exercises effects by the preponderance of serotonin as well.
