3,5-Diiodo-L-tyrosine dihydrate

There are many good reasons to eat fish and seafood, one of them is certainly the fact that they are rich in iodine salts, which are a fundamental for the endocrine activity of the thyroid gland. Iodine salts are enzymatically converted into molecular iodine, which adds to tyrosine residues in thyroglobulin forming diiodotyrosine. This is the first step towards the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones triodityronine T3 and tetraiodotyronine T4 which serve important regulatory functions in body metabolism and energy expenditure. Recently, the dietary introduction of potassium iodide and diiodotyrosine were compared in mice showing that diiodotyrosine can also be used effectively as food supplement preventing the potential damage from excessive intake of inorganic iodine salts.
