Environmental toxicant exposure can induce disorders in sex steroidogenesis during fetal gonad development. Our previous study demonstrated that chronic adult exposure to a supra environmental concentration of depleted uranium (DU) does not impair testicular steroidogenesis in rats. In this study, we investigated the effects of lifelong exposure (embryo - adult) to low-dose DU (40 or 120mgL-1) on adult rat testicular steroidogenesis and spermatogenesis. A significant content of uranium was… CONTINUE READING
