Types of deiodinases include:
|Iodothyronine deiodinase||selenium||DIO1, DIO2, DIO3|
In starvation, deiodinase (Deiodinase I specifically) is inhibited thus lowering basal metabolic rate. However, in the brain, heart, skeletal muscle and thyriod, this is not so as these organs need to maintain homeostasis (skeletal muscle through shivering can increase temperature). This is achieved by the latter organs expressing deiodinase II rather than Deodinase I as in most peripheral tissues.
