We synthesized an analogue of the thyromimetic GC-1 bearing the same hydrophobic appendage as the estrogen receptor antagonist ICI-164,384. While having reduced affinity for the thyroid hormone receptors compared to GC-1, it behaves in a manner consistent with a competitive antagonist in a transactivation assay.
