Definitions of O (4 Hydroxy 3,5 diiodophenyl) 3,5 diiodotyrosine

  1. The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines ( MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines ( DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.
