Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A affects adult murine neocortical structure

Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A affects adult murine neocortical structure Prenatal exposure to low-doses of bisphenol A (BPA) has been shown to affect murine neocortical development by accelerating neuronal differentiation/migration through disrupting thyroid hormone function. We therefore studied whether prenatal exposure to low-doses of BPA affected organization of adult neocortical structures. Pregnant mice were injected with 20 μg/kg of BPA daily from embryonic day 0.5 (E0.5) and bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) was injected at E12.5, E14.5 and at E16.5, and the fetal brains were analyzed after birth. The BrdU-positive cells labeled at E14.5 were significantly increased in the Vth and VIth cortical layers of BPA-treated mice at postnatal 3 weeks (P3W), whereas they were confined to the IVth layer of control mice, though such differences disappeared at P12W. The thalamocortical projections demonstrated by DiI-labeling were abnormal at P3W and P12W in BPA-treated mice. These results indicate that BPA might affect not only neocortical development but also thalamocortical connections. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Neuroscience Letters Elsevier

Abstract

Prenatal exposure to low-doses of bisphenol A (BPA) has been shown to affect murine neocortical development by accelerating neuronal differentiation/migration through disrupting thyroid hormone function. We therefore studied whether prenatal exposure to low-doses of BPA affected organization of adult neocortical structures. Pregnant mice were injected with 20 μg/kg of BPA daily from embryonic day 0.5 (E0.5) and bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) was injected at E12.5, E14.5 and at E16.5, and the fetal brains were analyzed after birth. The BrdU-positive cells labeled at E14.5 were significantly increased in the Vth and VIth cortical layers of BPA-treated mice at postnatal 3 weeks (P3W), whereas they were confined to the IVth layer of control mice, though such differences disappeared at P12W. The thalamocortical projections demonstrated by DiI-labeling were abnormal at P3W and P12W in BPA-treated mice. These results indicate that BPA might affect not only neocortical development but also thalamocortical connections.
