Perfluorooctanoic acid induced-developmental cardiotoxicity: are peroxisome proliferator activated receptor α (PPARα) and bone morphorgenic protein 2 (BMP2) pathways involved?


Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is an environmental contaminant known to induce developmental toxicity in animal models through activation of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα). Previously, it was demonstrated that in ovo exposure to PFOA induced cardiotoxicity in chicken embryos and hatchlings. To investigate potential PPARα-mediated… (More)
