Abstract A follicular adenoma of the thyroid was 'hot' one hour after 99mTc pertechnetate administration, but 'cold' 24 h after 131I iodide administration. Incubation of the tissue in vitro demonstrated a defect in iodide binding to proteins that was abolished by addition of an H2O2 generating system. In this tissue iodide failed to inhibit TSH-induced cyclic AMP accumulation. The results show that iodide oxidation is required for its inhibitory action on cyclic AMP accumulation in human thyroid.
