Alkylphenol ethoxylate degradation products such as nonylphenol and octylphenol are shown to have estrogenic effects. Nonylphenol induces synthesis of vitellogenin (a precursor of egg yolk proteins) and zona radiata proteins (eggshell proteins) in juvenile and/or male fish. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms of estrogenicity of environmental chemicals such as nonylphenol. To study the mechanisms of estrogenic effects of 4-nonylphenol (NP), we examined its in vivo effects on the… CONTINUE READING
