Abstract:The Ah receptor (AhR) is a ligand transcription factor mediating toxic effects of chemicals such as dioxins. The 2,3,7,8 tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and the coplanar polychlorinated biphenyl 126 (PCB 126) are member of the polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons family exerting a variety of toxic effects in a tissue-specific and species-specific manner including thyroid function. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effects of TCDD (1 and 10 nM) and dioxin-like PCB 126 (306 nM) on the AhR sig… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
