Due to the wide distribution and persistence of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), an increasing number of studies are focusing on the toxicological effects of PFOS exposure in mammalian and fish model species. The results of these studies (on estrogenic activity, development and reproduction, etc.), however, are largely inconsistent owing to differences in exposure conditions (exposure time, concentrations, species and test methods, etc.). Oviparous fish species such as zebrafish and common… 
Transcriptomic Changes in Liver of Juvenile Cynoglossus Semilaevis Following Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) Exposure.
TLDR
Examination of transcriptome responses to PFOS exposure in the liver of juvenile Cynoglossus semilaevis, an important farmed flatfish in China, provides new insights regarding the molecular toxicology of PFOS in a commercially important fish species.
ebrafish reproductive toxicity induced by chronic erfluorononanoate exposure
Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are a group of anthropogenic compounds that have been widely used in consumer products for over 50 years. One of the most dominant PFAAs is perfluorononanoate (PFNA), a
Embryonic exposure to PFOS induces immunosuppression in the fish larvae of marine medaka.
TLDR
Early life exposure to PFOS could alter immunoregulation functions, leading to functional dysfunction or weakness of the immune system in fish larvae, which may contribute to various detrimental health effects in the fish larvae.
Ecotoxicological effects of exposure to PFOS on embryo and larva of zabrafish Danio rerio
TLDR
The overall results indicated that PFOS imposed clearly developmental and behavioral toxicity on zebrafish embryos and larva and might be used as an integrative biomarker or indicator of aquatic environmental PFOS contamination.
Multi-generational xenoestrogenic effects of Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) mixture on Oryzias latipes using a flow-through exposure system.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PFAA mixture could have the potential of multi-generational endocrine disruptors in O. latipes.
Zebrafish reproductive toxicity induced by chronic perfluorononanoate exposure.
TLDR
Investigation of reproduction-related effects and possible mechanisms of PFNA on adult zebrafish following 180 days of exposure indicates that chronic exposure to PFNA can lead to dysfunction in the HPGL axis and sex hormone synthesis and cause adverse effects on fish reproduction.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluooctane sulfonate (PFOS) induce different modes of action in reproduction to Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes).
TLDR
Different transcriptional regulations of vitellogenin and choriogenin in male suggest that PFOA and PFOS have different mode of actions in reproductive effects despite their similar chemical structure.
Perfluorooctane sulfonate exposure causes gonadal developmental toxicity in Caenorhabditis elegans through ROS-induced DNA damage.
TLDR
Caenorhabditis elegans was used as an in vivo experimental model to study the developmental toxicity caused by PFOS exposure, especially in the gonads, and results suggested that ROS-induced DNA damage might play a pivotal role in the impairment of gonadal development indicated by the reduction in total germ cells, transient mitotic cell cycle arrest, and apoptosis.
Common carp Cyprinus carpio responses to sub-chronic exposure to perfluorooctanoic acid
TLDR
PFOA was not detectable in unexposed fish or in fish exposed to 200 ng/l, but was >LOD in most samples of carp exposed to 2 mg/l and quantified using high performance liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
Immunotoxic effects of perfluorooctane sulfonate and di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate on the marine fish Oryzias melastigma.
TLDR
This study provides a useful reference for immunotoxicological studies with O. melastigma and highlights the importance of assessing the combined effects of pollutant mixtures when determining the risk to aquatic organisms.

TLDR
Results showed that the mixture was always more potent than a single chemical and that swordtail fish can be a useful model for the study of endocrine disruptors.
Toxicity evaluation of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in the liver of common carp (Cyprinus carpio).
TLDR
The results support the prediction that increases in energy expenditure negatively affects processes vital to the survival of an organism, such as growth, as well as the need for mechanistic molecular understanding of the mode of action of this pollutants.
Chronic effects of water-borne PFOS exposure on growth, survival and hepatotoxicity in zebrafish: a partial life-cycle test.
TLDR
The overall results suggested that lower concentrations of PFOS in maternal exposure could result in offspring deformation and mortality in zebrafish.
Reproductive and developmental toxicity and bioconcentration of perfluorooctanesulfonate in a partial life-cycle test with the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas).
TLDR
Water and tissue concentrations of PFOS associated with effects in this study exceeded those reported for samples collected from the field by two to three orders of magnitude, suggesting that the current risk ofPFOS on aspects of fish reproduction and development assessed would be small.
Evaluation of the toxicological effects of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid in the common carp (Cyprinus carpio).
TLDR
It appears that inflammation was not involved in the observed membranous enzyme leakage for the 561, 670 and 864 ng/g PFOS treatment groups, and PFOS might interfere with homeostasis of the DNA metabolism.
Anti-estrogen prevents xenoestrogen-induced testicular pathology of eelpout (Zoarces viviparus).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an anti-estrogen can abolish effects on the testis caused by estrogenic chemicals, providing evidence that some of the effects are mediated by the estrogen receptor.
Partial life-cycle toxicity and bioconcentration modeling of perfluorooctanesulfonate in the northern leopard frog (Rana pipiens).
TLDR
The studies suggest that R. pipiens is not exceptionally sensitive to PFOS in terms of either direct toxicity or bioconcentration potential of the chemical.
Evaluation of estrogenic activities and mechanism of action of perfluorinated chemicals determined by vitellogenin induction in primary cultured tilapia hepatocytes.
TLDR
The overall results demonstrated that PFOS, PFOA and FTOHs have estrogenic activities and that exposure to a combination of E2 and PFCs produced anti-estrogenic effects.
Immunotoxic changes associated with a 7-day oral exposure to perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS) in adult male C57BL/6 mice
TLDR
Results indicate that PFOS exposure can affect the immunity function in mice and markedly depressed the natural killer cell activity, lymphocyte proliferation and the plaque-forming cell (PFC) response.
Toxicity of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid and perfluorooctanoic acid on freshwater macroinvertebrates (Daphnia magna and Moina macrocopa) and fish (Oryzias latipes).
TLDR
Two-generation fish toxicity tests showed that parental exposure to both compounds affected the performance of offspring, and more research is required to determine potential consequences of long-term exposure to these compounds in aquatic ecosystems.
