Using Radioimmunoassay to Investigate the Uptake by Amphibians of Estrogens

Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs) encompass a variety of chemical classes, including drugs, pesticides, compounds used in the plastics industry and in consumer products, industrial by-products and pollutants, and even some naturally produced botanical chemicals. Estrogens are chemical pollutants that can disrupt the endocrine system of animals by binding and activating the estrogens receptor(s). Largescale efforts are now in progress to develop a better understanding of how these compounds disrupt physiological function; however the information on the impacts of these compounds on wildlife populations is limited to a small number of vertebrate and invertebrate species.
