For competitive binding assays, isolated nuclei were incubated with a final concentration of 1 x [10.sup.-10] M [sup.125]I-[T.sub.3] and increasing concentrations of competitors (TR agonists: [T.sub.3], [T.sub.4], Triac (triiodothyroacetic acid), and Tetrac (tetraiodothyroacetic acid, 1 x [10.sup.-12] M to 1 x [10.sup.-9] M; PCBs, 1 x [10.sup.-9] M to 1 x [10.sup.-3] M).
We then tested the ability of [T.sub.3] and other TR agonists ([T.sub.4], Triac, and Tetrac) to displace [sup.125]I-[T.sub.3] from TRs in hepatic nuclei (Figure 5A); using the [K.sub.d] obtained from saturation analyses, a specific [K.sub.i] was calculated for each compound (Table 2).
