Using Effects-Directed Analysis to test for Endocrine-Active Chemicals

Effects-directed analysis (EDA) reverse-engineers environmental toxicity testing by measuring effects on cells first, and identifying the particular chemicals later. In this publication, we reviewed published information on EDA methods to improve future methods.

Effects of Early Life Stage Exposure of Largemouth Bass to Atrazine or a Model Estrogen (17α-Ethinylestradiol)

Early development is a sensitive window for estrogenic endocrine disruption in largemouth bass. Atrazine treatments caused changes to gene expression patterns that were both similar to estrogen and distinct from estrogen.

Thiamine (Vitamin B1) Deficiency in Fish and Wildlife

In the last few decades, thiamine deficiency has been observed in fish and wildlife in the Great Lakes, Alaska, Sweden and several other areas in North America and Europe. Thiamine is an essential vitamin needed for cell function. Thiamine deficiency has been linked to neurological disorders, immunosuppression, and lower reproductive viability. These disorders potentially reduce populations of...

Pallid Sturgeon Early Life

CERC biologists focus on improving understanding of biomechanics of eggs, free embryos, and larvae through direct observation and measurement. An improved understanding of biomechanics – how biotic conditions and processes interact with physical processes to result in changes in survival – is necessary to create quantitative links between management actions and population-level results.
