OSORIO, José Henry; SUAREZ, Yirly Johanna  y  URIBE-VELAZQUEZ, Luis Fernando. THYROID HORMONES IN SMALL RUMINANTS: REVIEW ARTICLE AND LITERATURE UPDATE. Biosalud [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.1, pp.85-95. ISSN 1657-9550.

Objective: To update concepts on thyroid hormones functioning in small ruminants. Materials and methods: Through available literature review from the last 50 years in the BBCS-LILACS, Fuente Académica, IB-PsycINFO, IB-SSCI, IB-SciELO, SCOPUS, and SCIRUS data bases as well as historical articles, texts and references cited in published work. Results: Information obtained related to the objectives proposed in the present review allows to classify into five sections as follows: thyroid hormones functioning; thyroid hormones and reproduction of small ruminants; thyroid hormones and fetal development; thyroid hormones, pregnancy and lactation; and factors that alter thyroid hormones levels. Conclusion: The proper functioning of metabolic pathways depends largely of thyroid hormones due to their specific effects on different organs, maintaining the homeostasis among all tissues.
