Direct evidence for disulfides in the mechanism of deiodinase 1

Rodriguez Alfonso Ruben Ruiz , Braun Doreen , Schweizer Ulrich

The main product of the thyroid gland, T4, is a prohormone. 5’-deiodination is needed to convert T4 into the active, nuclear receptor-binding hormone, T3. Pharmacological modulation of activating 5’-and inactivating 5-deiodination of iodothyronines would be desirable in a number of medical conditions, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and various cancers. A structural and mechanistic understanding of deiodinase (DIO) catalysis...
