Abstract

1. 1. Evidence is obtained for a major role of thyroxine to triiodothyronine (and/or reverse-triiodothyronine) conversion in the early phase of cold and warm acclimation. 2. 2. The short term change in deiodination seems to be the first response to changes in environmental temperature, and might precede the thyrotropin release from the pituitary after mild cold exposure. 3. 3. The idea of autoregulation of thyroid hormone metabolism is discussed.
