BACKGROUND Various lines of evidence have shown that bisphenol A [BPA; HO-C6H4-C(CH3)2-C6H4-OH] acts as an endocrine disruptor when present in very low doses. We have recently demonstrated that BPA binds strongly to human estrogen-related receptor-gamma (ERR-gamma ) in a binding assay using [3H]4-hydroxytamoxifen ([3H]4-OHT). We also demonstrated that BPA(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA) has been acknowledged as an estrogenic chemical able to interact with human estrogen receptors (ER). Many lines of evidence reveal that BPA has an impact as an endocrine disruptor even at low doses. However, its binding to ER and hormonal activity is extremely weak, making the intrinsic significance of low dose effects obscure. We thus(More)
Steroidal nuclear receptors (NRs) have been acknowledged as a target binding protein of so-called endocrine disruptors. It is therefore necessary to develop an efficient assay system for screening these endocrine-disrupting chemicals. We here describe the first exemplification of a direct measure of fluorescence intensity for a binding assay of NRs. We(More)
