Effects of in utero exposure to bisphenol A on mRNA expression of arylhydrocarbon and retinoid receptors in murine embryos.

Abstract

To evaluate the effects of bisphenol A (BPA), a candidate endocrine disruptor (ED), on embryonic development, we examined the mRNA expression levels of the arylhydrocarbon receptor (AhR), which binds with many EDs and plays crucial roles in xenobiotic metabolism, and of the retinoic acid receptor (RAR) alpha and retinoid X receptor (RXR) alpha, key factors… (More)
