Type II iodothyronine deiodinase is an enzyme that in humans is
encoded by the DIO2 gene.The protein encoded by this gene belongs
to the iodothyronine deiodinase family. It activates thyroid
hormone by converting the prohormone thyroxine (T4) by outer ring
deiodination (ORD) to bioactive 3,3',5-triiodothyronine (T3). It is
highly expressed in the thyroid, and may contribute significantly
to the relative increase in thyroidal T3 production in patients
with Graves' disease and thyroid adenomas.
