Due to the large number of applications of bisphenol-A (BPA), the human exposure routes are multiple. We aimed to review shortly the food and non-food sources of BPA, and to evaluate their contribution to the human exposure. Food sources discussed here include epoxy resins, polycarbonate and other applications, such as paperboard and polyvinylchloride(More)
This work reports the binding capacity of various chemicals (so-called endocrine disruptors) to recombinant human steroid receptors (hERalpha, hPR and hAR). The tested chemicals are organochlorine insecticides (DDT and its metabolites, methoxychlor, aldrin, dieldrin, chlordecone, lindane, trichlorobenzene), estrogenic insecticides (endosulfan, toxaphene,(More)
High performance liquid chromatography coupled to an ultraviolet, diode array or fluorescence detector (HPLC/UV-FLD) has been used to set up a method to detect the 15(+1) EU priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in food supplements covering the categories of dried plants and plant extracts excluding oily products. A mini validation was performed(More)
Twelve (Exp. 1) and 24 (Exp. 2) young growing bulls were used to compare the effects of long-acting, cholesterol-based implants with short-acting, lactose-based implants. Each implant contained 200 mg of trenbolone acetate and 40 mg of 17 beta-estradiol. The long-acting, cholesterol-based implants were applied once either 18 wk (early implantation) or 12 wk(More)
A comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC x GC-TOF-MS) experimental setup was tested for the measurement of seven 2,3,7,8-substituted polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), ten 2,3,7,8-substituted polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), four non-ortho-polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), eight mono-ortho-PCBs,(More)
The acrylamide (AA) intake of the Belgian consumer was calculated based on AA monitoring data of the Belgian Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC) and consumption data of the Belgian food consumption survey coordinated by the Scientific Institute for Public Health (3214 participants of 15 years or older). The average AA exposure,(More)
Placental tissue exhibits a typical glycosylation pattern, which differs from that observed in the pituitary gland. Depending to the species and pregnancy period, the placenta synthesizes diverse glycoproteins, some of which have significant hormonal activity, others being detected in maternal circulation. Thus, these molecules are of interest both from a(More)
The amino acid sequences of both the alpha and beta subunits of porcine thyrotropin have been studied. Bovine thyrotropin primary structure was taken as a model for ordering the tryptic peptides of porcine thyrotropin. The amino acid sequence of the alpha subunit is identical to that of porcine luteinizing hormone, while oligosaccharide side-chains differ(More)
We have studied stable transformed human mammary cell lines with highly inducible steroid receptor-mediated luciferase reporter gene expression. Cells responding specifically to glucocorticoids, progestagens, androgens, or estrogens are described and characterized. The use of this high-throughput, cell-based assay for analysis of steroid (ant)agonists is(More)
