Summary of "Effect of Tetrabromobisphenol A on expression of biomarkers for inflammation and neurodevelopment by the placenta."

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) enhance basal and bacteria-stimulated production of proinflammatory cytokines by the placenta and may also increase the risk of preterm birth and neurodevelopmental disorders. Whether or not other brominated flame retardants such as Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) have similar properties is unclear. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of TBBPA on the production of steroids, as well as biomarkers for inflammation, oxidative stress, and neurodevelopment by the placenta.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A factor associated with the well-being of living organisms that is used as a measure of environmental change and or influence. For example, aldehyde dehydrogenase expression in earthworm tissue is used as an indication of heavy metal pollution in soils. Distinguish from BIOMARKERS.

An angiogenic protein belonging to the Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor family of growth factors originally isolated and cloned from human placental cDNA library. There are four isoforms of PLGF 1-4 which result from alternative splicing. Placenta Growth Factor is secreted as a glycosylated homodimer which acts as a mitogen for endothelial cells, and its expression is markedly upregulated during hypoxia and in tissue inflammation and cancer.

A placenta that fails to be expelled after BIRTH of the FETUS. A PLACENTA is retained when the UTERUS fails to contract after the delivery of its content, or when the placenta is abnormally attached to the MYOMETRIUM.

The study of the relationship between NUTRITIONAL PHYSIOLOGY and genetic makeup. It includes the effect of different food components on GENE EXPRESSION and how variations in GENES effect responses to food components.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
