While bisphenol F (BPF) has been frequently detected in various environmental compartments, limited information is available on its effect on thyroid endocrine system. In the present study, zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos were exposed to 0.2, 2, 20, and 200 μg/L of BPF from 2 h post-fertilization (hpf) to 144 hpf. The whole-body content of thyroid hormones, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), and transcription of genes belonging to the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis were investigated… CONTINUE READING
