Session 2 CM endo2

CM- Endo -2- Thyroid lect 5-6

Where in embrylogical development does the thyroid develop from Between 1st and 2nd pharyngeal pouches
How does the thyroid get to where it is in the adult decends anterior to the hyoid bone through the thyroglossal duct, which becomes solid and atrophies
What problem can present anywhere along this path where the thyroid descended you can find thyroglossal cysts anywhere along the migration path from tongue to sternum

What type of cell lines the colloid lumen colloid lumen is lined by single layer of epithelial cells
what do the epithelial cells that line the lumen of the colloid do they synthesis the thyroid hormone
What do para follicular cells do in the thyroid also called C-Cells they synthesis calcitonin which inhibits bone reabsorption
What is calcitonin hormone secreted by parafollicular cells that inhibits bone reabsorption
How do we get Iodine into the body it is absorbed from the dietary intake in the GI tract
HOw does thyroid get into the thyroid it is actively transported into the thyroid
What is thryoglobulin a large glycoprotein in the follicular colloid
How is thyroid hormone T3 and T4 made 1st- 1 or 2 iodine are added to tyrosine attached to thyroglobulin to make either monoiodotyrosine (MIT) or diodotyrosine (DIT) 2nd- 1mit + 1DIT= T3 triiodothyronine or 2 dit = t4 thyroxine
How is hormone secretion from the thyroid controlled controlled by hypothalamic secretion of TRH which stimulates pituitary to secrete TSH which stimulate thyroid to secrete and produce more T3 and T4
What blood proteins bind T3 and T4 thyroid binding globulin TBG 70% and albumin 30% bind T4 and T3 for transport to periphereal tissues
Which hormone T4 or T3 is biologically active T3
What happens to T4 in peripheral tissue it is converted to more bioactive hormone T3
