The widely used herbicide atrazine is a potent endocrine disruptor known to cause increased aromatase expression and transient increase in testicular weight followed by remarkable testis atrophy. However, whether the effects of atrazine on the testes are primary or secondary to dysfunctions in other components of male reproductive tract remains unknown. Given the high sensitivity of the efferent ductules to estrogen imbalance and the similarity to alterations previously described for other… Expand
