Associations of Pyroclor 5 with other chemical compounds

  • Estrogen supplementation modulates effects of the endocrine disrupting pollutant PCB126 in rat bone and uterus: diverging effects in ovariectomized and intact animals [8].
  • 1. Pregnant Wistar rats were treated orally with a single dose of 100 microg 3,3',4,4'-tetrachlorobiphenyl (PCB 77)/kg b.w. or 10 microg 3,3',4,4',5 pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB 126)/kg b.w. on day 15 of pregnancy [9].
  • We measured in-ovo CYP1A catalytic activity (ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase, EROD) in NB and reference site killifish embryos aqueously exposed to various concentrations of the de-methylating agent 5-azacytidine, 5-AC (5, 50 and 500 micro(micro)M) with or without 0.2 micro(micro)g/l of the CYP1A inducer 3,3',4,4',5 pentachlorobiphenyl (IUPAC PCB126) [10].

Gene context of Pyroclor 5

  • Incubation with TCDD or PCB126 with or without serum caused a concentration-dependent decrease in the aromatase activity of up to 4.9-fold [6].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Pyroclor 5

  • Interactive effects between the non-ortho-substituted 3,3', 4,4', 5-pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB126), the mono-ortho-substituted 2,3,3',4, 4'-pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB105), and the di-ortho-substituted 2,2',4, 4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (PCB153) were studied in an initiation/promotion bioassay [11].
