Pathologic changes associated with 2,3,7, 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) exposure have been reported in the livers of a wide range of species. While these changes have been extensively described, the mechanisms of toxic interaction(s) that produce these lesions remain unclear. Using an aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr) knockout male mouse chimeric model, we investigated whether the presence of this receptor in hematopoietic and/or parenchymal cells affects TCDD-induced hepatotoxicity.
