Sex specific impact of perinatal bisphenol A (BPA) exposure over a range of orally administered doses on rat hypothalamic sexual differentiation


By: K. McCaffrey n, B. Jones*, N. Mabrey n, B. Weiss*, S. Swan* & H. Patisaul n

author keywords: Endocrine disruption; Estrogen; Hypothalamus; Sexually dimorphic; Dopamine
MeSH headings : Administration, Oral; Air Pollutants, Occupational / toxicity; Analysis of Variance; Animals; Benzhydryl Compounds / administration & dosage; Benzhydryl Compounds / toxicity; Calbindins / metabolism; Cell Count; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Female; Hypothalamus / drug effects; Hypothalamus / metabolism; Male; Phenols / administration & dosage; Phenols / toxicity; Pregnancy; Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects / chemically induced; Rats; Rats, Long-Evans; Sex Differentiation / physiology; Tyrosine 3-Monooxygenase / metabolism
TL;DR: It is demonstrated that early life oral exposure to BPA at levels well below the current No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) of 50mg/kg/day can alter sex specific hypothalamic morphology in the rat. (via Semantic Scholar)

Disrupted Organization of RFamide Pathways in the Hypothalamus Is Associated with Advanced Puberty in Female Rats Neonatally Exposed to Bisphenol A


By: S. Losa-Ward n, K. Todd n, K. McCaffrey n, K. Tsutsui* & H. Patisaul n

author keywords: endocrine disruptor; kisspeptin; puberty; RFRP
MeSH headings : Animals; Benzhydryl Compounds; Body Weight / drug effects; Estrogens, Non-Steroidal / toxicity; Female; Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone / metabolism; Hypothalamus / drug effects; Kisspeptins / metabolism; Male; Neuropeptides / metabolism; Phenols / toxicity; Puberty, Precocious / blood; Puberty, Precocious / chemically induced; Rats; Rats, Transgenic; Rats, Wistar; Vagina / drug effects
TL;DR: Data suggest that BPA-induced premature puberty results from decreased inhibition of GnRH neurons, which are critical for initiating puberty and maintaining estrous cyclicity by stimulating gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) release. (via Semantic Scholar)
