Elevated testosterone levels have been reported to be associated with imposex (pseudohermaphroditism), the superimposition of male characteristics such as a penis and vas deferens on female gonachoristic snails. Tributyltin (TBT), a marine biocide in anti-fouling paints, is a known causal agent of imposex. Evidence suggests that imposex is elicited by TBT-mediated changes in the biotransformation and disposition of testosterone. To identify potential targets of TBT in gastropod species… CONTINUE READING
