Toxicol Lett. 2003 Apr 30;142(1-2):119-31.We performed a reporter gene assay for estrogen receptor (ER)-alpha agonists and antagonists of 10 chemicals that showed both estrogen agonistic and reduced the estrogenic effect of ethinyl estradiol in a rat uterotrophic assay. The chemicals tested by the immature uterotrophic assay were p-(tert-pentyl)phenol, 4,4'-thiobis-phenol, 4,4'-(hexafluoroisopropylidene)diphenol, 2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4-methyl-n-pentane, 4,4'-(octahydro-4,7-methano-5H-inden-5-ylidene)bisphenol, 4-(phenylmethyl)phenol, 4,4'-dihydroxybenzophenone, 2,2',4,4'-tetrahydroxybenzophenone, 4-hydroxybenzophenone and 2,4,4'-trihydroxybenzophenone.
