AbstractMany endocrine disrupting compounds are bioaccumulative and toxic to a wide range of marine organisms, leading to reproductive impairment, development of cancer and abnormal metabolism. For instance, organotin compounds (OTs) such as tributyltin and triphenyltin can induce the development of imposex (i.e., superimposition of male sexual organs) in females of over 200 gastropod species. OTs have been widely used as biocides in antifouling paints and industrial applications. Thus they have been released into the marine environment, posing risks to non-target marine organisms and human health. Although many studies have been conducted to ...
