Monoethylhexyl Phthalate Elicits an Inflammatory Response in Adipocytes Characterized by Alterations in Lipid and Cytokine Pathways.Lee, Kyongbum.
Background: A growing body of evidence links endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) with obesity-related metabolic diseases. While it has been shown that EDCs can predispose individuals towards adiposity by affecting developmental processes, little is known about the chemicals' effects on adult adipose tissue. Objectives: Our aim was to study the effects of low, physiologically relevant doses of ED... read more
