Abstract:

Although Bisphenol-A (BPA) has been found to exhibit toxicological properties such as genotoxicity and oxidative stress, there is very little data available on its analogues. Since the replacement of BPA by its analogues, their presence has been found to increase in the environment leading to increased human exposure making it essential to investigate their toxic effects. Therefore, we explored the genotoxic and oxidative potential of two common BPA analogues, Bisphenol-B (BPB) and Bisphenol-F (BPF). Both analogues were found to induce cytotoxicity in human peripheral blood cells. They also caused an increase in reactive oxygen species levels leading to a decrease in GSH and an increase in LPO levels. Comet assay suggested them to be genotoxic. Therefore, bisphenols were found capable of inducing cytotoxicity via oxidative stress and genotoxicity.
