Germ Cell Development

Sex differences in germ cells are believed to be epigenetically regulated, as distinct differences in DNA methylation and histone modifications have been found in germ cells during sex determination…


Brain Sex Differences

In model organisms, mate selection and mating behaviors have been found to be affected by developmental exposure to environmental estrogenic or anti-androgenic chemicals, suggesting that current…


Transgenerational Inheritance of Environmentally Induced Health Effects

The window of early embryonic development is susceptible to environmental chemical stressors…


Environmentally induced epigenetic memory

Gene-environment interactions can lead to emergence of phenotypes. Environmental stressors are able to induce epigenetic changes (chemical modifications on DNA structure) that are mitotically…


Epigenetic effects of early developmental exposure to emerging environmental contaminants and AOP pathway

Growing number of studies reveal the fact that the aquatic environment is threatened by increasing rate of chemical contamination…
