OSORIO, José Henry; VINASCO RODRIGUEZ, Jazmín  y  BEDOYA, Paola Andrea. UPDATE ON THE THYROID HORMONES METABOLISM AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH BOAR REPRODUCTION. Biosalud [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.77-88. ISSN 1657-9550.

This review article aimed to update concepts on the metabolism of thyroid hormones and their relationship with boar reproduction. The available literature of the past 25 years in the BBCS- LILACS, Academic source, IB-PsycINFO, SSCI IB-, IB-SciELO, Scopus and Scirus databases as well as historical articles, texts and references cited work public, were analyzed. Relevant information to the objectives was gotten, highlighting the multiple functionality and the relationship thyroid hormones have with the different tissues in the organism, thus being classified in four sections as follows: synthesis, transport and metabolism; receptors and mechanisms of action; effects of thyroid hormones; thyroid hormones and reproduction. It can be concluded that thyroid hormones have important roles in ovaries and testicles, and play a crucial role in the development of reproduction cells. Changes in these hormones can produce infertility, as an adequate level of these hormones is necessary for ovulation and spermatogenesis.
