In the present study, we assessed the treatment effects of PBDE-209 administration on the immune function in rats during pregnancy and lactation. We harvested the blood and organs for flow cytometry, viability assay, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and histological evaluation. The results of this study were the PBDE-209 exposure during pregnancy and(More)
Brominated diphenly ether-209 (BDE-209, decaBDE) is among the most common flame retardants. In a previous study, it was confirmed that exposure to BDE-209 can decrease learning and memory in mice. However, it is still unknown whether BDE-209 has an effect on cultured neural stem cells (NSCs). To analyse the role of BDE-209 in the differentiation of neural(More)
The congener brominated diphenyl ether- 209 (BDE-209) is a high-bromine polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) and a common flame retardant that is applied to electronic equipment. In this study, we investigated the effects of BDE209 on the regulation of proliferation and apoptosis of neural stem cells (NSCs) and determined the underlying protein alterations.(More)
Globally, brominated diphenyl ether-209 (BDE-209) is the most widely used polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDEs). It has been reported that BDE-209 induces developmental neurotoxicity in vivo. The purpose of this study was to use an antioxidant, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), as an antidote for the neurotoxic effect of BDE-209. We used primary hippocampal neurons(More)
