Pretreatment of male C57BL/6 mice with low doses of the persistent organochlorine
(OC) pesticide, chlordecone (CD), stimulated biliary excretion of exogenous CH up to 3-fold. Increased biliary excretion occurred without changes in hepatic ATP-binding
cassette transporter G8 (ABCG8) of the bile canaliculus or scavenger receptor class B
type I (SR-BI)...
Overtly non-toxic doses of organochlorine (OC) insecticides perturb lipid homeostasis
in mice and rats. To increase understanding of how chlordecone (CD), an OC
insecticide, modulates cholesterol (CH) homeostasis, we determined the effect of CD
pretreatment on the tissue and hepatic subcellular distribution of exogenous [¹⁴C]CH. Corn oil alone or CD...
