BPA induced damage to testes of Channa punctatus


Author(s): Parul Nangia

Abstract: Rapid industrailization has led to the introduction of a large number of xenobiotics into the environment. Bisphenol a (BPA) is a synthetic high-volume chemical that is widely used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and composites. BPA is reported to be an endocrine disrupting agent that interferes with the delicate interplay of hormones and gonadal histology. This study investigated the effect of three different BPA concentrations on testicular histology of Channa punctatus. Exposure to BPA resulted in degeneration of testicular tissue and proliferation of interstitial tissue. Necrosis of cells was also seen at higher concentrations of BPA after 30 days exposure. However, no ovo-testis or testicular follicles were observed.
