Subjects: ICR/Jcl mice

Chemical: Bisphenol A

Low doses tested: 2 or 20 μg/kg bw/d

Route of administration: dissolved in sesame oil and injected subcutanously

Exposure duration: gestational day 11 – gestational day 17 (comparable to human prenatal development from approximately day 1 of week 4 to day 1 of week 9)

Age of measurement: from birth to adulthood
