Producing thyroid hormones (T4 and T3), chemicals that travel through the blood to every part of the body. Thyroid hormones tell the body how many calories we burn, how warm we feel, and how much we weigh. Mechanism of Thyroid Hormones Action at the Cell Level: Binds to high affinity T3 nuclear receptor complex, which stimulates the formation of mRNA sequences and subsequently brings about new protein synthesis. Binds to receptors for T3 at the mitochondrial level; stimulation of oxygen consumption and increase in BMR. Enhance sympathetic activities.
