Butyl paraben-induced changes in DNA methylation in rat epididymal spermatozoa.

Abstract

Parabens have been shown to affect male rodent reproductive parameters, including testosterone levels and sperm production. In this study, we examined the effect of long-term exposure to butyl paraben (BP) on rat epididymal sperm DNA methylation. Adult male rats were exposed to BP (0, 10, 100 and 1000 mg kg(-1) per day) according to OECD TG407 for a… (More)
