The latter investigators showed that the hormonal effect must occur at or near the extracellular face of the Na + channel, since application ofT 3 to the cytoplasmic face of the patches was ineffective. It should be emphasized that a variety of other factors, including second messenger pathways, also influence channel gating (8). The relevance of these Na + channel observations to the acute effects of thyroid hormone on the human heart in the setting of cardiopulmonary bypass surgery (27) is speculative.
