Bisphenol A (BPA) as a chemical raw material, is widely used in the manufacturing process of daily necessities. It was reported that BPA could induce oxidative stress, and catalase (CAT) can protect the body from oxidative stress. In this paper, the effect of BPA on CAT was carried out in vitro and in vivo. Firstly, we studied the effects of BPA on oxidative stress, cell viability and CAT activity in human hepatocytes, and the results of vitro experiments show that the survival rate of hepatocytes significant decreased along with the increase of BPA concentration. And when the BPA concentration was 100 μM, the hepatocyte survival decreased by 13.2%, ROS levels in the cells increased by 85%. However, the activity of intracellular CAT increased with the increasing concentration of BPA in 24 h. The results of vivo experiments showed that the activity of CAT in the high-dose group decreased by 29.1% compared with the control group. The long-term effects of BPA on rats reduced the CAT activity in liver, which reduced the resistance to oxidative stress. Meanwhile, the interaction mechanism between BPA and CAT at the molecule level was performed via multiple spectra methods and molecular docking, and the results illustrated that the structural change of CAT is mainly due to the strong combination of BPA with the residues of Trp185. In addition, the interaction mechanism between BPA and CAT were hydrophobic and electrostatic effect. This study provided experimental evidence for better understanding the toxicity of BPA.
