• mice exhibit central hypothyroidism

• in hypothyroid mutants
• fasting-induced weight loss is higher in hypothyroid and euthyroid mutants than in wild-type mice

• hypothyroid mutants under fasting conditions show only a marginal elevation in serum ghrelin levels compared to fasting wild-type mice or euthyroid mutants
• acylated ghrelin levels in the serum are similar in hypothyroid and euthyroid mutants as in wild-type mice under feeding conditions
• the fasting-induced rise in acylated ghrelin that is seen in wild-type mice is diminished in hypothyroid and in euthyroid mutants
• hypothyroid mutants show elevated total ghrelin serum levels under feeding conditions compared to euthyroid mutants and wild-type mice
• mice rendered euthyroid by thyroid hormone treatment before fasting show lower serum thyroid hormone levels
• however, serum thyroid hormone levels do not change in hypothyroid mutants upon fasting
• approximate 50% reduction in serum T3 and T4 concentrations
• approximate 50% reduction in serum T3 and T4 concentrations
• increase in oxygen consumption under conditions of ad libitum food accessibility
• hypothyroid mutants display similar oxygen consumption and locomotor activity values under fasting and feeding conditions in the first hours of the dark period unlike wild-type mice which show a mild reduction in oxygen consumption and lower locomotor activity under food deprivation conditions
• however, oxygen consumption and locomotor activity decline in the second half of the fasting period as in wild-type mice
