Inhibition of sterologenesis in brain and liver of fetal and suckling rats from dams fed di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate plasticizer

The effect of di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) on lipid metabolism was studied in liver and brain from fetal rats taken 3 days before parturition from dams receiving dietary DEHP during gestation. In fetuses from rats receiving 0.5% or 1.0% DEHP in a stock diet, the incorporation of14C-acetate and labeled mevalonate (3H or14C) into the C27 sterols, C30… (More)
