In an earlier study using a recombinant yeast screen we found that a suspension of diesel exhaust particles (DEP) and some extracts of DEP are not estrogenic but possess anti-estrogenic activity. In the present study, estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activities of two types of DEP, type-1 (old type) and type-2 (new type) were compared. Whole DEP of both types were found to possess estrogenic and anti-estrogenic activities. The DEP were serially extracted with organic solvents and then with 1 M… Expand
Identification of estrogenic and antiestrogenic activities of respirable diesel exhaust particles by bioassay-directed fractionation
TLDR
Antiestrogenic activity of CE was stronger than that of antiestrogensic fractions (F3 and F4) at non-cytotoxic concentrations, indicating that additive or synergistic effects by unidentified chemicals contained in DEPs occurred. Expand
Estrogenic activities of chemicals in diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
It was found that the neutral fraction of the hexane extract of DEP contains dibenzothiophene derivatives, one of which, 4,6-dimethyldibenz Rothiophene, possesses estrogenic activity. Expand
Estrogenic and anti-androgenic activity of nitrophenols in diesel exhaust particles (DEP).
TLDR
Anti-androgenicity is found in all four nitrophenols isolated from diesel exhaust particles (DEP) because these compounds are alkylphenolic derivatives that might mimic hormones. Expand
Antiandrogenic activity of extracts of diesel exhaust particles emitted from diesel-engine truck under different engine loads and speeds.
TLDR
The antiandrogenic effects of DEPE samples were enhanced by a higher engine load which resulted in DEPC samples with elevated AhR agonistic and AR antagonistic activities. Expand
Anti-androgenic activity of 3-methyl-4-nitrophenol in diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that PNMC in diesel exhaust particles clearly has anti-androgenic activity both in vitro and in vivo and can therefore be considered as an endocrine-disrupting chemical. Expand
Estrogenic and anti-androgenic activities of 4-nitrophenol in diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
The results suggest that diesel exhaust emissions and the degradation of parathion can lead to accumulation of PNP in air, water, and soil and thus could have serious deleterious effects on wildlife and human health. Expand
Antiandrogenic activities of diesel exhaust particle extracts in PC3/AR human prostate carcinoma cells.
TLDR
Diesel exhaust particles emitted from three diesel-engine vehicles and prepared DEPE extracts show that DEPE samples exhibit significant antiandrogenic effect in cell-based transcription assay and that this effect is due in part to the constituents with AhR agonist activity including PAHs and to the constituent with AR antagonist activity.

Estrogenic Activities of Nitrophenols in Diesel Exhaust Particles1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PNMC and PNMPP in DEP have estrogenic activity both in vitro and in vivo and might therefore be considered as endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Expand
VARIATION IN THE ANTIANDROGENIC ACTIVITY OF DIESEL EXHAUST PARTICULATES EMITTED UNDER DIFFERENT ENGINE LOADS
We examined endocrine disruptors in diesel exhaust particulates (DEP) emitted from a diesel engine under different engine loads. The antiandrogenic and aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) agonisticExpand
Inhibition of progesterone receptor activity in recombinant yeast by soot from fossil fuel combustion emissions and air particulate materials.
TLDR
Emission samples generated by fossil fuel combustion and air particulate material collected from an urban location near a traffic line in a big city of China were evaluated to interact with the human progesterone receptor (hPR) signaling pathway, showing a strong relationship existed between estrogenic activity and anti-progesteronic activity in emissions of fossilfuel combustion.

Anti-estrogenic activity of diesel exhaust particles.
TLDR
It is thought that those compounds in DEP can modulate the activity of estrogen, leading to the distruption of balance between estrogen and androgen. Expand
Estrogenic activity of surfactants and some of their degradation products assessed using a recombinant yeast screen
An estrogen-inducible screen was developed in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) in order to assess whether surfactants and their major degradation products are estrogenic. The DNA sequence of theExpand
The anti-estrogenic activity of selected polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons in yeast expressing human estrogen receptor.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the PAHs dibenz[a,h]-anthracene, 6-hydroxy-chrysene, 2,3-benzofluorene, and benzo(a)pyrene may antagonize activity in yeast by binding to an anti-estrogen binding site on the hER or by mechanisms independent of the h ER. Expand
Structural Features of Alkylphenolic Chemicals Associated with Estrogenic Activity*
TLDR
The aim of this project was to identify the important structural features responsible for the estrogenic activity of AP chemicals by incubating APs with different structural features in a medium containing a previously described estrogen-inducible strain of yeast expressing the human estrogen receptor. Expand
Some alkyl hydroxy benzoate preservatives (parabens) are estrogenic.
TLDR
Findings from in vitro and in vivo studies which confirm that a range of alkyl hydroxy benzoate preservatives (parabens) are weakly estrogenic are reported, suggesting that the safety in use of these chemicals should be reassessed. Expand
Environmentally persistent alkylphenolic compounds are estrogenic.
TLDR
It is shown that a number of alkylphenolic compounds, used in a variety of commercial products and found in river water, are estrogenic in fish, birds, and mammals and capable of stimulating vitellogenin gene expression in trout hepatocytes, gene transcription in transfected cells, and the growth of breast cancer cell lines.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that EDEP is able to activate the AhR and ER and induce transcription of reporter genes regulated by these receptors' DNA response elements and further study is required to identify the individual compound(s) responsible for the observed activity. Expand
Biological effects of diesel exhaust particles. I. In vitro production of superoxide and in vivo toxicity in mouse.
TLDR
It was suggested that most parts of DEP toxicity in lungs are due to active oxygen radicals such as O2.- and .OH, and that the cause of death is due to pulmonary edema mediated by endothelial cell damage. Expand
Exposure to diesel exhaust affects the male reproductive system of mice.
TLDR
It is proposed here that diesel exhaust is an environmental pollutant with the potential to influence male reproductive function and a no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) was observed with approximately 30 micrograms DEP/m3, which is lower than the WHO-recommended limit. Expand
