Abstract: PCBs are known as neurotoxic compounds. Part of this neurotoxicity could be due to an alteration of the expression of TH-regulated genes in brain. To identify such genes, brain protein extracts of hypo- and hyperthyroid as well as PCB-treated embryos were compared by fluorescent 2D-DIGE. In total, we observed 109 differentially expressed proteins, of which 17 differed with both PCB and hypo- or hyperthyroid treatment. It was found that the interaction of PCBs with the expression of TH-regulated genes is congener-specific and that both hyperthyroidism- and hypothyroidism-related effects occur.
