Maternal organophosphate flame retardant exposure alters the developing mesencephalic dopamine system in fetal rat


By: A. Newell n, V. Kapps n, Y. Cai n, M. Rai, G. St Armour n, B. Horman n, K. Rock n, S. Witchey n, A. Greenbaum n, H. Patisaul n

author keywords: neurodevelopment; monoamine; OPFR; OPE; flame retardants; neurotransmitters; neurotoxicity; neurotoxicology; prenatal; reproductive and developmental toxicology; mesocortical dopamine system; tissue clearing light sheet microscopy.
TL;DR: Results indicate maternal exposure to OPFRs alters the development trajectory of the embryonic dopaminergic system and adds to growing evidence of OPFR developmental neurotoxicity. (via Semantic Scholar)

Skeletal effects following developmental flame-retardant exposure are specific to sex and chemical class in the adult Wistar rat


By: S. Schkoda n, B. Horman n, S. Witchey*, A. Jansson n, S. Macari* & H. Patisaul n

author keywords: endocrine disrupting chemicals; flame retardants; sex difference; osteotoxicology; computed tomography; bone
TL;DR: Although sex specificity was expected due to the sexual dimorphic nature of skeletal physiology, the mechanisms accounting for the male- and female-specific phenotypes remain to be determined and future work aims to clarify these unresolved issues. (via Semantic Scholar)

Impacts of Gestational FireMaster 550 (FM 550) Exposure on the Neonatal Cortex are Sex Specific and Largely Attributable to the Organophosphate Esters

Witchey, S. K., Doyle, M. G., Fredenburg, J. D., St Armour, G., Horman, B., Odenkirk, M. T., … Patisaul, H. B. (2022, September 8). NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY, Vol. 9.

By: S. Witchey n, M. Doyle n, J. Fredenburg n, G. St Armour n, B. Horman n, M. Odenkirk n, D. Aylor n, E. Baker n, H. Patisaul n

TL;DR: This study reveals multiple mechanisms by which the components of a common FR mixture are developmentally neurotoxic and that the OPFRs may be the compounds of greatest concern. (via Semantic Scholar)

Perinatal exposure to FireMaster (R) 550 (FM550), brominated or organophosphate flame retardants produces sex and compound specific effects on adult Wistar rat socioemotional behavior


By: S. Witchey n, L. Al Samara n, B. Horman n, H. Stapleton* & H. Patisaula

author keywords: Behavior; Brain; Neurodevelopment; Endocrine disruptors; Endocrine disrupting chemicals; Flame retardants
MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Newborn; Behavior, Animal / drug effects; Emotions / drug effects; Endocrine Disruptors / toxicity; Female; Flame Retardants / toxicity; Hydrocarbons, Brominated / toxicity; Male; Maternal Exposure / adverse effects; Organophosphates / toxicity; Polybrominated Biphenyls / toxicity; Pregnancy; Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects / chemically induced; Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects / physiopathology; Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects / psychology; Rats; Rats, Wistar; Sex Characteristics; Social Behavior
TL;DR: Examining adult Wistar rat offspring socioemotional behaviors following perinatal exposure to FM550 helps elucidate how different classes of flame retardants, independently and as a mixture, contribute to sex-specific behavioral effects of exposure. (via Semantic Scholar)

Perinatal bisphenol A (BPA) exposure alters brain oxytocin receptor (OTR) expression in a sex- and region- specific manner: A CLARITY-BPA consortium follow-up study


By: S. Witchey n, J. Fuchs n & H. Patisaul n

author keywords: Behavior; Estrogen; Endocrine disruption; Sexual differentiation; Neuroendocrine; Oxytocin
MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Newborn; Benzhydryl Compounds / toxicity; Brain Chemistry / drug effects; Endocrine Disruptors / toxicity; Ethinyl Estradiol / toxicity; Female; Hypothalamus / drug effects; Hypothalamus / metabolism; Male; Oxytocin / biosynthesis; Phenols / toxicity; Pregnancy; Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects / metabolism; Rats; Rats, Sprague-Dawley; Receptors, Oxytocin / biosynthesis; Septal Nuclei / drug effects; Septal Nuclei / metabolism; Sex Characteristics
TL;DR: Prenatal exposure to BPA can eliminate sex differences in OTR expression in three hypothalamic regions, and that male O TR expression may be more susceptible, and a sexually dimorphic sub-region of the BNST not previously reported in juvenile rats is identified that is also susceptible to B PA.
