Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is used as plasticizer and is ubiquitously found in the environment. Exposure to DEHP has been linked to an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes. Pancreatic β-cell dysfunction is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes; however, it is unknown whether DEHP exposure contributes to this risk. Here, we aimed to investigate the(More)
Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) is a persistent organic contaminant and has been widely detected in the sea water. However, toxic effects of PFOS on cardiac development in marine organisms have not been reported. In the present study, we investigated the toxicity of PFOS on the cardiac development using Oryzias melastigma embryos. The embryos at 2 days(More)
Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) showed a risk of causing adverse effects including hatching of animals. However, there are no systematical studies about the effects of PFOS on fish embryo hatching. In this study, a precocious hatching was detected in Oryzias melastigma embryos upon PFOS exposure. The average hatching time was shortened and the hatching(More)
Oryzias melastigma is a newly emerging marine fish model. However, the application of this model has been restricted because of the lack of genomic information. Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), a persistent organic pollutant, is widely distributed in the estuarine/marine environment. The toxicological effects of PFOS on organisms, especially on marine fish(More)
Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) is widely distributed in seawater. However, the effects of PFOS on important receptors involved in the toxicity of POPs have not been fully defined, especially for the embryonic stages of marine fish. In this study, we examined the transcriptional responses and PFOS accumulation in the marine medaka embryos at the early and(More)
Concern has increased regarding the adverse effects of di-(2-ethylhexyl)-phthalate (DEHP) on reproduction. However, limited information is available on the effects of DEHP in marine organisms. The aim of the present study was to examine whether long-term exposure to DEHP and its active metabolite mono-(2-ethylhexyl)-phthalate (MEHP) disrupts endocrine(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the pro-resolution actions of 15-R-LXA(4) (LXA(4)) on endometriotic lesions and on the expression of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in the murine endometriosis model. STUDY DESIGN In a prospective, placebo-controlled experimental study, endometriosis was induced in thirty BALB/c mice, and(More)
Humans undergo simultaneous daily exposure to a multitude of endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs). In present study, after combined exposure to endocrine disruptors DEHP and Aroclor 1254 for 12 days, a liquid chromatography/time-of-flight mass spectrometer method combining both reversed-phase (RP) and hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC)(More)
The prevalence of bisphenol A (BPA) in the environment has attracted increasing attention because of the toxicity of this manmade pollutant. However, the toxicity related to cardiac development remains largely unknown. In the present paper, we investigated the cardiac toxicity of BPA using marine medaka (Oryzias melastigma) embryos. At 2 days(More)
Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is extensively distributed in marine environments. However, limited research on the toxicological and molecular effects of DEHP on marine organisms has been conducted. Our study investigated the accumulation, elimination, and endocrine-disruptive effects of DEHP on embryonic marine medaka (Oryzias melastigma). The medaka(More)
