Thyroid hormones regulate adult bone turnover. Thyrotoxicosis results in high turnover osteoporosis whilst hypothyroidism leads to low bone turnover with increased bone mass and mineralisation. T3-target tissues express thyroid hormone receptor alpha (TRα), thyroid hormone receptor beta (TRβ)or both receptors. TRα1 mediates the actions of T3 in bone and in skeletal cells TRα1 mRNA expression is 12-fold higher than TRβ1. Accordingl...
