Abstract

This study is part of a project aimed at developing and validating novel noninvasive methods for the detection of biomarkers of endocrine disrupters (EDs) directly in the mucus of aquatic species, to identify novel functional biomarker(s) for EDs, and to verify their applicability for field studies. The multidisciplinary approach chosen aims at the development of an integrated testing strategy utilizing in vitro protocols to identify water and sediment fractions with potential endocrine-disrupting activity; the identification, characterization, and measurement of new biomarker(s) for EDs; the development and validation of a dipstick-based test method; and the development of (computer-assisted) predictive models. Some results of the first year of the project are presented here.
