Therefore, it is possible that perchlorate may cross the thyrocyte membrane by diffusion.
Assuming 10-20 pg total RNA per thyrocyte, mRNA from ~50-100 cells/mL of blood was detected by ethidium bromide staining.
Perchlorate transfer into the thyrocyte is evidenced by the effect of Cl[O.

Since Tg protein expression is highly restricted to the thyroid gland, they surmised that Tg mRNA transcription would likewise be restricted to thyrocytes, and, hence, any Tg mRNA detected in circulation would have to come from circulating normal or malignant thyrocytes.
Expression of TPO and ThOXs in human thyrocytes is downregulated by IL-1alpha/IFNgamma, an effect partially mediated by nitric oxide.
The PAX8/PPAR[gamma] fusion oncoprotein transforms immortalized human thyrocytes through a mechanism probably involving wild-type PPAR[gamma] inhibition.
Chronic interferon-alpha exposure leads to changes in thyroid gland, including enlarged follicles lined by thickened granular and oxyphilic thyrocytes with diffuse mononuclear infiltrates of the stroma (8).
