Polycarbonates are widely used in food packages, drink bottles, and various healthcare products such as dental sealants and tooth coatings. However, bisphenol A (BPA) and phosgene used in the production of commercial polycarbonates poses major concerns to public health safety. Here, we report a green pathway to prepare BPA-free polycarbonates (BFPs) by thermal ring opening polymerization and photopolymerization. Polycarbonates prepared from two cyclic carbonates in different mole ratios demonstrated tunable mechanical stiffness, excellent thermal stability, and high optical transparency...

One-monomer molecularly imprinted magnetic nanoparticles were prepared as adsorbents for selective extraction of bisphenol A from water in this study. A single bi-functional monomer was adopted for preparation of the molecularly imprinted polymer, avoiding the tedious trial-and-error optimizations as traditional strategy. Moreover, bisphenol F was used as the dummy template for bisphenol A to avoid the interference from residual template molecules. These nanoparticles not only showed large adsorption capacity and good selectivity to the bisphenol A, but also outstanding magnetic response performance...

Bisphenol S (BPS), an alternative product to bisphenol A (BPA), has been the focus of increasing public concern due to its potential endocrine disrupting effect and its adverse effects related to metabolic disorders such as obesity. The detection of its residue in drinking water supply systems suggests that BPS can be chlorinated; however, whether its endocrine disrupting effect can be disrupted by this chlorination remains unclear. In the present study, we identified the byproducts of the reaction of BPS with chlorine and assessed the effect of the main byproducts on peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ)...

The laccase gene from Pycnoporus sanguineus was cloned and inserted between the strong Pcbh1 promoter and the Tcbh1 terminator from Trichoderma reesei to form the recombinant plasmid pCH-lac. Using Agrobacterium-mediated technique, the pCH-lac was integrated into the chromosomes of T. reesei. Twenty positive transformants were obtained by employing hygromycin B as a selective agent. PCR was used to confirm that the laccase gene was integrated into the chromosomal DNA of T. reesei. Laccase production by recombinant transformants was performed in shaking flasks, and the activity of laccase reached 8...

Bisphenol S (BPS) is an endocrine-disrupting chemical with multiple potential mechanisms of action, including as an oestrogen receptor agonist. BPS is increasingly used in plastics and thermal receipts as a substitute for bisphenol A, which has been phased out due to concerns about human health implications. The ability of BPS to alter female reproductive function in mammals has not been widely studied, despite the importance of normal hormone signalling for female reproduction. The aim of this study was to investigate how BPS (in a wide range of doses, including very low doses) affects granulosa cell and theca cell steroid hormone production and cell viability in the bovine...

BACKGROUND: Background: Bisphenol A (BPA) is an estrogen-like chemical widely contained in daily supplies. There is evidence that environmental exposure to BPA could contribute to the development of hormone-related cancers. As is reported in numerous studies, melatonin, an endogenous hormone secreted by the pineal gland, could markedly inhibit estrogen-induced proliferation of breast cancer (BC) cells. In this study, we intended to reveal the effects of melatonin on BPA-induced proliferation of estrogen receptor-positive BC cells...

In recent decades the embryo of Gallus g. domesticus has been widely used as a model for the study of early sexual development and the potential impact of substances affecting development, including endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Since there is no standardized procedure available for experiments with the chicken embryo, the objective of our project is to expedite the protocol to assess the potential effects of EDCs on early sexual differentiation. The main aim of the present study was to systematically investigate the natural variability of individual developmental and histological key parameters in untreated and solvent-treated control groups, since this has been insufficiently addressed so far...

In the present work we investigate the activation efficiency of H2O2 and S2O82- using UVA and UVB radiation. Bisphenol-A (BPA) is used as model pollutants to estimate the oxidative process efficiency in simulated and real sewage treatment plant waters. Particular attention is paid to the BPA removal efficiency and to the radical mechanism involvement considering the effect of typical inorganic water constituents (carbonates and chloride ions) and organic matter. Despite a detrimental effect observed when carbonate ions are in solution using both hydrogen peroxide and persulafate, the presence of high chloride ions concentration was found to improve BPA removal using S2O82- as radical precursor...

DNA methylation is the most well studied of the epigenetic regulators in relation to environmental exposures. To date, numerous studies have detailed the manner by which DNA methylation is influenced by the environment, resulting in altered global and gene-specific DNA methylation. These studies have focused on prenatal, early-life, and adult exposure scenarios. The present review summarizes currently available literature that demonstrates a relationship between DNA methylation and environmental exposures. It includes studies on aflatoxin B1, air pollution, arsenic, bisphenol A, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, persistent organic pollutants, tobacco smoke, and nutritional factors...

The safety of bisphenol A (BPA) alternatives has attracted much attention due to their wide use. In this study, we investigated the effects of bisphenol F (BPF), an alternative to BPA, on thyroid hormone (TH) signaling and postembryonic development in vertebrates using T3-induced and spontaneous Xenopus metamorphosis as models. We found that in the T3-induced metamorphosis assay, higher concentrations of BPF (100-10000 nM) antagonized T3-induced TH-response gene transcription and morphological changes including intestinal remodeling in a concentration-dependent manner, whereas 10 nM BPF exerted stimulatory effects on T3-induced integral metamorphosis when inhibited T3-induced TH-response gene transcription, demonstrating TH signaling disrupting effects of BPF...

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a highly toxic chemical, and its residue in milk product is threatening people's health due to its possible leaching from the packagings and cans with BPA coating. In this work, halides modified Au nanoparticles (NPs) as the modification substrates were first designed for rapid and sensitive determination of BPA residue in real milk by SERS method with the assistance of aggregation agents (Zn2+). It can be concluded that Au NPs modification substrate with assistance of the aggregation agent can remarkably improve the detection sensitivity of BPA residue, which can significantly enhance the SERS signal of BPA and achieve the trace-level detection of BPA residue...
