x NZW)[F.sub.1] mouse, a murine SLE model, the presence or absence of estrogen markedly influences the rate of progression of disease.
To investigate the effects of the estrogen receptor-binding molecule bisphenol A (BPA) on murine immune function in vivo, we fed a low dose of 2.5 [micro]g BPA/kg body weight/day to both normal C57BL/6 and lupus-prone NZB
x NZW [F.sub.1] (NZB/NZW) 5-week-old mice for 1 week.
