Abstract

Background. Thyroid hormone acts on structural and functional maturation of the mammalian small intestine, mitochondrial pathways, and several protein-gene interactions. Therefore, it is one of the most important regulators of intestinal epithelial differentiation. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of thyroid hormone on the adaptation in an experimental model of short bowel syndrome.
