    Synthesis, storage, secretion, delivery, and utilization of thyroid hormones are dependent upon specific enzymatic activity; inherited disorders may cause thyroid disease. Studies of a cretinous patient from consanguine marriage have indicated a limited response to thyrotrophic (TSH), both in synthesis of the specific thyroid protein thyroglobulin and in cell growth and division. Other similar response has been observed in a strain of mice. Familial goiter and hypothyroidism may occur when there is failure of the thyroid cell to transport iodide.
