The effects of ACTH and dexamethasone upon plasma thyroid hormone levels and heat production in the domestic fowl.

Treatment with long acting ACTH (20 IU kg-1) produces a large and sustained elevation of plasma corticosterone in the domestic fowl. Both ACTH treatment and administration of dexamethasone produce significant reductions in plasma concentrations of T4 and T3, and these changes are accompanied by a sustained hyperglycaemia. Despite the changes in circulating thyroid hormones only a small reduction in heat production (-14%) was induced by either treatment and mainly during the dark period. Whilst there may be some causal relationship between increased corticosterone secretion, decreased plasma thyroid hormone levels and reduced metabolic heat production it is unlikely that these responses alone account for the adjustments in energy expenditure observed in short term food deprivation.[1]
