Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are additive flame retardants used in a wide range of consumer products. Both compounds have been detected in free-living avian species, but toxicological and molecular end points of exposure are limited. An in vitro approach was used to compare concentration-dependent effects of HBCD(More)
Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) is an additive flame retardant used primarily in polystyrene foams. HBCD is a persistent contaminant that has been detected in abiotic and biotic matrices, including wild avian species. The toxicological implications of exposure are not well characterized. We recently identified molecular end points responsive to HBCD exposure(More)
