    A definition of the term "thyroxine" is presented. It refers to the thyroid hormone which is transformed in peripheral tissues by the enzyme 5'-monodeiodinase to triiodothyronine. Thyroxine is three to eight times less active than triiodothyronine. It circulates in plasma bound to plasma proteins.
