___
Part 2
5 What was the effect of thyroxine injections on the normal rat’s BMR? ___
___
___
6 What was the effect of thyroxine injections on the thyroidectomized rat’s BMR? How does the BMR in this case compare with the normal rat’s BMR? Was the dose of thyroxine in the syringe too large, too small, or just right? ___
___
___
7 What was the effect of thyroxine injections on the hypophysectomized rat’s BMR? How does the BMR in this case compare with the normal rat’s BMR? Was the dose of thyroxine in the syringe too large, too small, or just right? ___
___
___
Part 3
8 What was the effect of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) injections on the normal rat’s BMR? ___
___
___
9 What was the effect of TSH injections on the thyroidectomized rat’s BMR? How does the BMR in this case compare with the normal rat’s BMR? Why was this effect observed? ___
___
10 What was the effect of TSH injections on the hypophysectomized rat’s BMR? How does the BMR in this case compare with the normal rat’s BMR? Was the dose of TSH in the syringe too large, too small, or just right? ___
___
___
Part 4
1. What was the effect of propylthiouracil (PTU) injections on the normal rat’s BMR? Why did this rat develop a palpable goiter?
___
___
