Each aliquot was placed in a 50-mL Teflon centrifuge tube containing 5 [micro]g of diiodotyrosine as a protective carrier substance, and an appropriate amount of thyroxine-[d.sub.5] was added to give an ~1:1 ratio of analyte to internal standard.
After centrifugation of the tube for 10 min at 2000g, the upper ethyl acetate layer was transferred to another 50-mL Teflon tube containing 5 [micro]g of diiodotyrosine. Ethyl acetate extraction was repeated twice more with 4 mL and 3 mL of ethyl acetate, respectively.
Products were detected by a UV spectrophotometer at 210 [micro]m and identified by comparison with standards of mono- and diiodotyrosine.
