Events Including This StressorThis table is automatically generated and lists KE’s including this stressor.
Chemical TableThe Chemical Table lists chemicals associated with a stressor. This table contains information about the User’s term for a chemical, the DTXID, Preferred name, CAS number, JChem InChIKey, and Indigo InChIKey. Instructions To add a chemical associated with a particular stressor, next to the Chemical Table click ‘Add chemical.’ This will redirect you to a page entitled “New Stressor Chemical.’ The dialog box can be used to search for chemical by name, CAS number, JChem InChIKey, and Indigo InChIKey. Searching by these fields will bring forward a drop down list of existing stressor chemicals formatted as “CAS- preferred name” “JChem InChIKey – preferred name” or “Indigo InChIKey- preferred name” depending on which field you perform the search. Select an entity from the drop down list and click ‘Add chemical.’ This will return you to the Stressor Page, where the new record should be in the ‘Chemical Table’ on the page.
Interference with thyroid serum binding protein transthyretin and subsequent adverse human neurodevelopmental toxicity
Some phthalates have been found to competitively bind to TTR (Ishihara et al 2003; Weiss et al 2015) and have been implicated as thyroid toxicants (Boas et al 2012; Gore et al 2015; Miller et al 2009). While both animal and human data is scarce, there is some evidence for dose-dependent biochemical and morphological changes in animals (Howarth et al 2001; Liu et al 2015; O'Connor et al 2002) as well as in humans (Huang et al 2007; Meeker et al 2007).
