Abstract : Bisphenol-A BPA is one of the highest-volume chemicals produced worldwide and the widespread exposure of individuals to BPA is suspected to affect a variety of physiological functions, including reproduction, development, and metabolism. Its estrogenic activity has been well documented in the last 15 years. In addition to estrogen receptors, BPA has been also shown to bind to and activate the estrogen-related receptor γ and pregnane X receptor and inhibit the androgen receptor. Halogenated BPAs were also shown to activate the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ and inhibit thyroid hormone receptors. In this chapter, we review recent studies shedding light on the structural and molecular mechanisms by which BPA and its halogenated derivatives interfere with nuclear hormone receptor signaling. These data provide guidelines for the development of safer substitutes devoid of hormonal activity and may help environmental risk assessment.
