Estrogen-related receptor gamma is an in vivo receptor of bisphenol A

Abstract : Bisphenol A (BPA) is an endocrine disruptor that displays estrogenic activity. Several reports suggest that BPA may have estrogen receptor-independent effects. In zebrafish, 50 muM BPA exposure induces otic vesicle abnormalities, including otolith aggregation. The purpose of this study was to test if BPA action was mediated in vivo during zebrafish development by the orphan nuclear estrogen related receptor (ERR) gamma. Combining pharmacological and functional approaches, we demonstrate that the zebrafish ERRgamma mediates BPA-induced malformations in otoliths. Using different bisphenol derivatives, we show that different compounds can induce a similar otolith phenotype than BPA and that the binding affinity of these derivatives to the zebrafish ERRgamma correlates with their ability to induce otolith malformations. Morpholino knockdown of ERRgamma function suppresses the BPA effect on otoliths whereas overexpression of ERRgamma led to a BPA-like otolith phenotype. Moreover, a subphenotypical dose of BPA (1 muM) combined with ERRgamma overexpression led to a full-dose (50 muM) BPA otolith phenotype. We therefore conclude that ERRgamma mediates the otic vesicle phenotype generated by BPA. Our results suggest that the range of pathways perturbed by this compound and its potential harmful effect are larger than expected.-Tohme, M., Prud'homme, S.
