Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with the liable 2,3,6-substitution are important components of certain commercial mixtures and frequently detected in biota, but little is known about their enzyme induction abilities and possible endocrine-disrupting effects. CB 132 (2,2',3,3',4,6'-hexachlorophenyl) and CB 149 (2,2'3,4',5',6-hexachlorophenyl) were investigated in weanling female rats dosed intraperitoneally on days 21 and 22 and killed on day 24 of age. Uterotropic response, serum thyroid… CONTINUE READING
