Abstract / Description:Although thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is known to be a major regulator of thyroid hormone biosynthesis and thyroid growth, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) is required for mediating thyrocyte growth in concert with TSH in vitro. We generated mice with thyrocyte-selective ablation of IGF-1 receptor (TIGF1RKO) to explore the role of IGF-1 receptor signaling on thyroid function and growth. In 5-wk-old TIGF1RKO mice, serum thyroxine (T4) concentrations were decreased by 30% in concert with a 43% down-regulation of the monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8), which is involved in T4 secretion. Despite a 3.5-fold increase in circulating concentrations of TSH, thyroid architecture and size were normal. Furthermore, thyrocyte area was increased by 40% in WT thyroids after 10 d TSH injection, but this effect was absent in TSH-injected TIGF1RKO mice. WT mice treated with methimazole and sodium perchlorate for 2 or 6 wk exhibited pronounced goiter development (2.0 and 5.4-fold, respectively), but in TIGF1RKO mice, goiter development was completely abrogated. These data reveal an essential role for IGF-1 receptor signaling in the regulation of thyroid function and TSH-stimulated goitrogenesis.
