Thyroid Conditions

Common Name(s)

Thyroid Conditions

The thyroid gland influences almost all of the processes in the body because of the hormones that it produces. It is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck. Thyroid disorders can range from mild to severe, ranging from an enlarged gland to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid conditions are due to an abnormal production of thyroid hormones. An estimated 59 million Americans have a thyroid condition, but the majority are not aware of their condition. A thyroid condition may affect weight, cause depression or low energy levels, and if untreated may lead to obesity, heart disease, anxiety, hair loss, or infertility.

Pathways Regulating Spheroid Formation of Human Follicular Thyroid Cancer Cells under Simulated Microgravity Conditions: A Genetic Approach.
 

Author(s): Stefan Riwaldt, Johann Bauer, Markus Wehland, Lasse Slumstrup, Sascha Kopp, Elisabeth Warnke, Anita Dittrich, Nils E Magnusson, Jessica Pietsch, Thomas J Corydon, Manfred Infanger, Daniela Grimm

Journal:

 

Microgravity induces three-dimensional (3D) growth in numerous cell types. Despite substantial efforts to clarify the underlying mechanisms for spheroid formation, the precise molecular pathways are still not known. The principal aim of this paper is to compare static 1g-control cells ...

The Importance of Caveolin-1 as Key-Regulator of Three-Dimensional Growth in Thyroid Cancer Cells Cultured under Real and Simulated Microgravity Conditions.
 

Author(s): Stefan Riwaldt, Johann Bauer, Jessica Pietsch, Markus Braun, Jürgen Segerer, Achim Schwarzwälder, Thomas J Corydon, Manfred Infanger, Daniela Grimm

Journal:

 

We recently demonstrated that the CAV1 gene was down-regulated, when poorly differentiated thyroid FTC-133 cancer cells formed spheroids under simulated microgravity conditions. Here, we present evidence that the caveolin-1 protein is involved in the inhibition of spheroid formation, ...

Immunohistochemistry with the anti-BRAF V600E (VE1) antibody: impact of pre-analytical conditions and concordance with DNA sequencing in colorectal and papillary thyroid carcinoma.
 

Author(s): Katerina Dvorak, Birte Aggeler, John Palting, Penny McKelvie, Andrew Ruszkiewicz, Paul Waring

Journal: Pathology. 2014 Oct;46(6):509-17.

 

The most common of all activating BRAF mutations (T1799A) leads to a substitution of valine (V) to glutamic acid (E) at the position 600 of the amino acid sequence. The major goal of this study was to compare detection of the BRAF V600E mutation by DNA sequencing with immunohistochemistry ...

Central regulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis under physiological and pathophysiological conditions.
 

Author(s): Csaba Fekete, Ronald M Lechan

Journal: Endocr. Rev.. 2014 Apr;35(2):159-94.

 

TRH is a tripeptide amide that functions as a neurotransmitter but also serves as a neurohormone that has a critical role in the central regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis. Hypophysiotropic TRH neurons involved in this neuroendocrine process are located in the hypothalamic ...

[Thyroid dysfunction: interactions between genetic and environmental conditions].
 

Author(s): M Tome, R Chami, P Petrosians, B Corvilain, A Beckers

Journal: Rev Med Liege. ;67(5-6):314-8.

 

Thyroid dysfunction (TD) is a very common entity in clinical practice nowadays. Prevalence may be underestimated because of the limitations of epidemiological studies. There are mainly genetic and environmental factors that interact on thyroid function. Genetic factors are extensively ...

Splicing variants impact in thyroid normal physiology and pathological conditions.
 

Author(s): Elizabete Rosária de Miranda, Luiz De Marco, Maria Marta Sarquis Soares

Journal: Arq Bras Endocrinol Metabol. 2009 Aug;53(6):709-15.

 

RNA splicing is an essential, precisely regulated process that occurs after gene transcription and before mRNA translation, in which introns may be removed and exons, retained. Variability in splicing patterns is a major source of protein diversity from the genome and function to ...
