Classical nuclear hormone receptor activity as a mediator of complex concentration response relationships for endocrine active compounds.
Nonmonotonic concentration response relationships are frequently observed for endocrine active ligands that act via nuclear receptors. The curve of best fit for nonmonotonic concentration responseExpand

Estrogen-Like Disruptive Effects of Dietary Exposure to Bisphenol A or 17α-Ethinyl Estradiol in CD1 Mice
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an endocrine disrupting chemical that is ubiquitous in wild and built environments. Due to variability in study design, the disruptive effects of BPA have proven difficult toExpand

Estrogen and Soy Isoflavonoids Decrease Sensitivity of Medulloblastoma and Central Nervous System Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor Cells to Chemotherapeutic Cytotoxicity
Background Our previous studies demonstrated that growth and migration of medulloblastoma (MB), the most common malignant brain tumor in children, are stimulated by 17β-estradiol. The growthExpand
