- Developmental atrazine exposure suppresses immune function in male, but not female Sprague-Dawley ratsAndrew A Rooney
College of Veterinary Medicine, Anatomy, Physiological Sciences and Radiology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina 27695, USA
Toxicol Sci 76:366-75. 2003..These results demonstrate that developmental exposure to ATR produced gender-specific changes in immune function in adult rats and suggest that immune changes associated with ATR are not mediated through the suppression of PRL or THs...
- Recent progress and diverse effects in developmental immunotoxicology: overview of a symposium at the 46th Annual SOT Meeting, Charlotte, NCAndrew A Rooney
National Center for Environmental Assessment, Office of Research and Development, US Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711, USA
J Immunotoxicol 5:395-400. 2008....
- Sex-specific effects of neonatal exposures to low levels of cadmium through maternal milk on development and immune functions of juvenile and adult ratsStéphane Pillet
INRS Institut Armand Frappier, Universite du Quebec, 245 Hymus Boulevard, Pointe Claire, Que, Canada H9R 1G6
Toxicology 209:289-301. 2005..In conclusion, neonatal exposures to environmentally relevant levels of Cd through maternal milk represent a critical hazard liable to lead to both transitory and persistent immunotoxic effects...
- Neonatal hypothyroidism alters the localization of gap junctional protein connexin 43 in the testis and messenger RNA levels in the epididymis of the ratNancy St-Pierre
INRS Institut Armand Frappier, Universite du Quebec, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H9R 1G6
Biol Reprod 68:1232-40. 2003..In the cauda epididymidis, however, Cx43 immunostaining in PTU-treated rats was similar to controls. These data suggest that thyroid hormones regulate Cx43-dependent gap junctional communication in the testis and epididymis...
- Neonatal exposure to propylthiouracil induces a shift in lymphoid cell sub-populations in the developing postnatal male rat spleen and thymusAndrew A Rooney
INRS Institut Armand Frappier, Universite du Quebec, 245 boulevard Hymus, Pointe Claire, QC, Canada H9R 1G6
Cell Immunol 223:91-102. 2003..Temporary hypothyroidism induced from birth to the latter stages of the weaning period induced transitory effects on the spleen, thymus, and immune cell sub-populations--all of which recovered to normal values when the animals matured...
