Xenobiotics suspected of being estrogenic-the PCB aroclor 1242 and the pesticides toxaphene, dieldrin, p,p'-DDD, cis-Nonachlor, trans-Nonachlor, p,p'-DDE, and chlordane-were examined for their ability to override a male-producing incubation temperature and result in female hatchlings in the red-eared slider, a turtle with temperature-dependent sex determination. Compounds were assayed in the environmentally relevant concentrations detected in alligator eggs from Lake Apopka, Florida, singly, in… CONTINUE READING
