Endocrine-disrupting compounds are observed in wastewater effluent at varying concentrations.
Endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) can be defined as exogenous agents that change endocrine function and cause adverse effects at the level of the organism, its progeny, and/or subpopulations of organisms (U.
Many POPs are known endocrine-disrupting compounds altering hormone function or synthesis and may bind to estrogen receptors affecting hormonally mediated conditions.
Additional work is urgently required to assess the sources and environmental distribution of these and other endocrine-disrupting compounds, and to understand their biological consequences for lobsters and other organisms.
These endocrine-disrupting compounds include several xenoestrogens, androgens, and antiandrogens, which present a variety of chemical structures and mechanisms of action (4,5).
As hypotheses abound in the scientific community concerning the affected frogs, the Fargo team collaborates with other researchers, including the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), to find out whether deformed northern leopard frogs at certain sites are victims of endocrine-disrupting compounds.
The findings of field work like Guillette's and laboratory analysis like Gray's have been bolstered by studies of inadvertent human exposures to endocrine-disrupting compounds.
What we've in fact done is spray the globe with endocrine-disrupting compounds," says Guillette.
These compounds are called hormone-disrupting or endocrine-disrupting compounds.
These findings suggest that early-life exposure to endocrine-disrupting compounds such as TBT can have permanent effects of fat accumulation without further exposure, said study leader Bruce Blumberg, UC Irvine professor of pharmaceutical sciences and developmental and cell biology.
Endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) are a growing area of concern in toxicology and public health.
Endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) are chemicals that can alter hormonal signaling and have potential effects on developing reproductive and nervous systems, metabolism, and cancer (Colborn et al.
