We have cloned the iodothyronine deiodinases type 2 (Dio2) and type 3 (Dio3), and the thyroid hormone receptors (TRα and TRβ) from the brain of the European sea bass and studied their tissue distribution by RT-PCR. These four transcripts were expressed in all central areas including neuroendocrine centres and the pituitary, as well as in photoreceptor organs and gonads.
