Bisphenols (BPs) are common environmental pollutants that are ubiquitous in the natural environment and can affect human health. In this study, we explored the effects of perinatal exposure to BPA, BPF and BPAF on liver function involving in oxidative damage and metabolic disorders in male mouse offspring. We found that BPA exposure impairs the antioxidant defense system, increases lipid peroxidation, and causes oxidative damage in the liver. Furthermore, the levels of 13 metabolites were significantly altered following BPA exposure. We found that BPF exposure significantly increased the expression and activity of CAT, suggesting disturbances in the antioxidant defense system. Moreover, BPF exposure led to metabolic disorders in the liver due to changes in the levels of 8 key metabolites. Exposure to BPAF caused no negative effects on oxidative damage, but altered the levels ofβ-glucose and glycogen. In summary, perinatal exposure to BPA, BPF and BPAF differentially influence oxidative damage and metabolic disorders in the livers of male mouse offspring. The impact of early life exposure to BPs now warrants future investigations.
