Protein kinase C delta interacts with the sodium iodide symporter (NIS) to increase its activity in human thyrocytes

Turner F , Eggo M

Because the sodium iodide symporter, NIS, may be artificially expressed in cells to introduce ablative doses of radioactive iodide, it may be of clinical use. NIS is normally found in the basolateral membrane of thyrocytes and its expression and activity are known to be regulated by TSH. We have used primary cultures of human thyrocytes to examine other regulators of NIS activity. NIS activity was measured as uptake of 125I into cells in the presence of the thyroper...
