Fig. 6. Schematic image of thyroid hormone synthesis procedure and effects of PTU and Low-level laser therapy. Although cellular activity is increased by LLLT (green arrow), there is no hormonal change because PTU (red arrow) prevents iodination of thyroglobulin (Tg) (TPO: thyroid peroxidase, MIT: monoiodothyronine, DIT: diiodothyronin, T3: triiodothyronine, T4: thyroxine).
