Abstract : Since thyroxine alone was found to have a direct stimulating effect on transcortin binding, it appears as the final common pathway involved in the mediation of the stimulating effects induced by estradiol and progesterone in the intact animal. Corticosterone and, to a lesser extent, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone exert inhibitory effects on transcortin-binding in the hypophysectomized animal.
