Effects of endocrine disruptors in the development of the female reproductive tract.

Environmental agencies have identified a growing number of environmental contaminants that have endocrine disrupting activity, and these can become a major public health problem. It is suggested that endocrine disruptors could account for the higher-than-expected increase in the prevalence of some non-communicable diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, thyroid diseases, and some cancers. Several ...

Endocrine disruptors and testis development.

After serving on a panel convened by the U.S. EPA on epidemiological studies needed for evaluation of possible health risks of MTBE as a fuel additive, I feel that the article is quite informative and will no doubt be useful for those contemplating further use of oxygenated fuels. There are two matters that I feel are of some importance , and about them the article is silent. First, the report ...

Endocrine disruption of oestrogen action and female reproductive tract cancers.

Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC) are ubiquitous and persistent compounds that have the capacity to interfere with normal endocrine homoeostasis. The female reproductive tract is exquisitely sensitive to the action of sex steroids, and oestrogens play a key role in normal reproductive function. Malignancies of the female reproductive tract are the fourth most common cancer in women, with end...

Comparative female reproductive tract development and morphology

A brief description of the basic pattern of mammalian organogenesis of the female reproductive tract is presented based on events as they occur in human beings. The emphasis is not on the details of this development, but rather its organization and timing. Tables of comparative development provide a comparison of similar events between man, rat, mouse, and chick.

Biology and physiology of Calbindin-D9k in female reproductive tissues: Involvement of steroids and endocrine disruptors

Although Calbindin-D9k (CaBP-9k), a cytosolic calcium binding protein which has calcium binding sites, is expressed in various tissues, i.e., intestine, uterus, and placenta, potential roles of this gene and its protein are not clearly understood. Uterine CaBP-9k may be involved in controlling myometrial activity related with intracellular calcium level and is not under the control of vitamin D...
