Integrins are plasma membranespanning molecules stabilized in the plasma membrane by actin microflaments (43). It is possible that TH acts via this route to influence neuronal migration, synapse formation, and morphogenesis (40). It is not yet known whether control of actin polymerization by iodothyronines occurs in cells other than glial cells, nor is it understood whether T4 and rT3 control the cell-surface presentation of proteins other than 5′-DII. It has recently been observed that the density of beta-adrenergic receptors (BAR) on the surface of chick embryonic cardiac myocytes can be increased nongenomically by T3 (24).

Action-potential duration (APD) is prolonged in ventricular myocytes obtained from hypothyroid rats (51). Incubation of hypothyroid cardiomyocytes with 100 nM T3 normalized APD. No hormonal effect on APD was observed when ventricular cells from euthyroid animals were exposed to TH. The action of TH can be viewed as a contribution to the basal APD. Sun has interpreted the mechanism of hormone action to be an effect on the time- and voltage-dependent potassium current (IK), an important determinant of repolarization (51).
