Caption: Thyroid gland. Computer artwork of a thyroid gland (red, centre), superimposed on an image of cells of thyroid follicles (green, blue). Thyroid follicles consist of a layer of epithelial cells (purple) around a central storage chamber (spaces). The cells produce the thyroid hormones tri-iodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) and secrete them into the central chamber where they are stored as the glycoprotein thyroid colloid (red). Thyroid hormones regulate the body's metabolism.
