Uterine Concentration of Thyroxine During the Estrous Cycle

John J. Jacobs, John W. Kendall

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Uterine ability to concentrate 131I-thyroxine in female rats during various stages of the estrous cycle was studied. Uteri from metestrous rats had the highest concentration of radioactivity. Uptake during diestrus although less than metestrus was significantly greater than during proestrus or estrus.
