The principal cardiovascular actions of TH nonetheless are seen to be genomic in mechanism (29,30). There are several other nonnuclear cellular effects of the hormone whose systemic roles appear to be of interest. Among such effects are the action of 3,3’-diiodothyronine (T2) on cytochrome c oxidase activity in mitochondria (31,32), an effect that may contribute to modulation by TH of cell and organ respiration, and which raises the possibility that deiodination of T3 may result in a biologically important analogue.
