Mixture Effects of 3 Mechanistically Different Steroidogenic Disruptors (Prochloraz, Genistein, and Ketoconazole) in the H295R Cell Assay

The results demonstrate that chemical analysis combined with the H295R cell assay is a useful tool also for studying how mixtures of endocrine disruptors with differing modes of action interfere with the steroidogenic pathway and that existing models like concentration addition are insufficient in such cases.

Corticosteroid Production in H295R Cells During Exposure to 3 Endocrine Disrupters Analyzed With LC-MS/MS

A newly developed and validated solid phase extraction (SPE) liquid chromatography–mass spectroscopy (LC-MS/MS) method was used and quality criteria for the production of these steroids in this cell line were suggested.

High-Throughput Screening of Chemical Effects on Steroidogenesis Using H295R Human Adrenocortical Carcinoma Cells

This assay platform provides a robust model for high-throughput screening of chemicals for effects on steroidogenesis and indicates a distinct pattern was observed between imidazole and triazole fungicides suggesting potentially distinct mechanisms of action.

High-Throughput H295R Steroidogenesis Assay: Utility as an Alternative and a Statistical Approach to Characterize Effects on Steroidogenesis

An integrated analysis of chemical-mediated effects on steroidogenesis in the HT-H295R assay is developed and the maximum mean Mahalanobis distance (maxmMd) values were high for strong modulators (prochloraz, mifepristone) and lower for moderatemodulators (atrazine, molinate).

Simultaneous profiling of 17 steroid hormones for the evaluation of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in H295R cells.

Through wide coverage, this system managed to capture the effects of exposure to increasing EDCs concentrations in the entire steroidogenic pathways and could be beneficial for the mechanistic investigation of EDCs.

Effects of antihistamines on the H295R steroidogenesis - Autocrine up-regulation following 3β-HSD inhibition.




Effects of fluorotelomer alcohol 8:2 FTOH on steroidogenesis in H295R cells: targeting the cAMP signalling cascade.

The H295R system for evaluation of endocrine-disrupting effects.

Assessment of the effects of chemicals on the expression of ten steroidogenic genes in the H295R cell line using real-time PCR.

An assay system was developed, optimized, and validated to measure the expression of 10 genes involved in steroidogenesis by the use of real-time quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR, which would be useful as a sensitive and integrative screen for the many effects of chemicals on steroidogenesis.

Quantitative RT-PCR methods for evaluating toxicant-induced effects on steroidogenesis using the H295R cell line.

It is demonstrated that the present assay can facilitate the development of compound-specific response profiles, and will provide a sensitive and integrative screen for the effects of chemicals on steroidogenesis.

Assessment of chemical effects on aromatase activity using the H295R cell line

Differential modulation of AA and hormone production was observed in H295R cells after exposure to seven model chemicals, illustrating the importance of measuring multiple endpoints when describing mechanisms of action in vitro.

The OECD validation program of the H295R steroidogenesis assay: Phase 3. Final inter-laboratory validation study

The H295R steroidogenesis assay protocol successfully identified the majority of chemicals with known and unknown modes of interaction as inducers or inhibitors of T and E2 production, and can be considered a reliable screen for chemicals that can alter the production of sex steroid hormones.

Effects of flavonoid phytochemicals on cortisol production and on activities of steroidogenic enzymes in human adrenocortical H295R cells

Induction and inhibition of aromatase (CYP19) activity by various classes of pesticides in H295R human adrenocortical carcinoma cells.

Time- response curves for cAMP induction and concentration-response curves for aromatase induction by vinclozolin, atrazine, and IBMX were similar, suggesting that the mechanism of aromat enzyme induction by these pesticides is mediated through inhibition of phosphodiesterase activity.
