Metabolic diseases (type 2 diabetes (T2D) and obesity) prevalence is increasing in the world. This is partly related to a change in lifestyle with an increase of caloric intake and a decrease of physical activity. Environmental causes are also involved among them exposure to bisphenol A (BPA). The mode of action of the latter is unknown. Beyond a suggesting effect relayed by nuclear receptors, we propose that BPA can act by modulating the functionality of G protein-coupled rec...

In vitro effects of bisphenol A and its analogs on human melanocortin 4 receptor

Louvigne Mathilde , Gourdin Louis , Briet Claire , Rodien Patrice , Munier Mathilde

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widely used chemical and belongs to the list of metabolism-disrupting chemicals. BPA is banned in several countries and replaced by others BPA-analogs. We investigate the effects of BPA and 6 BPA-analogs (BPS, BPAF, BPF, BPB and BADGE) on the response of the human melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R), a receptor involved in food intake and weight control, to its natural ligands. We used HEK293 cells line transiently transfected with human MC4R to determine the...
