Understanding the dynamics of physiological changes, protein expression, and PFAS in wildlife

January 15, 2022
Jacqueline Bangma, T.C. Guillette, Paige Bommarito, Carla Ng, Jessica L. Reiner, Andrew Lindstrom, Mark Strynar
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) accumulation and elimination in both wildlife and humans is largely attributed to PFAS interactions with proteins, including but not limited to organic anion transporters (OATs), fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs

January 1, 2021
Abby G. Wenzel, Jessica L. Reiner, Satomi Kohno, Bethany J. Wolf, John W. Brock, Lori Cruze, Roger B. Newman
Due to the mounting evidence that phthalates produce adverse endocrine effects in humans and wildlife, the use of other chemicals as replacements has increased. One of the most commonly encountered phthalate replacement is di(isononyl)cyclohexane-1,2

Jacqueline T. Bangma, Lauren A. Eaves, Kirsi Oldenburg, Jessica L. Reiner, Tracy Manuck, Rebecca C. Fry
Prenatal exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a ubiquitous class of chemicals, is associated with adverse outcomes such as preeclampsia, low infant birth weight and later-life adiposity. The objectives of this study were to examine PFAS levels in

Perfluorinated Alkyl Acids and Fecundity Assessment in Striped mullet (Mugil cephalus) at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

John Bowden, Jacqueline T. Bangma, Jessica L. Reiner, Russell H. Lowers, Theresa M. Cantu, Jacob Scott, Jeffery Korte, Douglas M. Scheidt, Chris McDonough, Jonathan Tucker, Eric Reyier, Douglas H. Adams, Bonnie Ahr, Brenton Back
This study investigated wild caught Striped mullet (Mugil cephalus) at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWR) for levels of 15 perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) in tandem with fecundity measurements (n = 42) and oocyte developmental stages (n = 128)

Analysis of PFAAs in American alligators Part 1: Concentrations in alligators harvested for consumption during South Carolina public hunts.

November 29, 2017
Jessica Tipton, Louis J. Guillette, Benjamin B. Parrott, Thomas R. Rainwater, Jessica L. Reiner
Environmental contamination resulting from the production or release of harmful chemicals can lead to negative consequences for wildlife and human health. Perfluorinated alkyl acids (PFAAs) were historically produced as protective coatings for many

Analysis of PFAAs in American alligators Part 2: Potential dietary exposure of South Carolina hunters from recreationally harvested alligator meat

November 29, 2017
Jessica Tipton, Louis J. Guillette, Susan Lovelace, Benjamin B. Parrott, Thomas R. Rainwater, Jessica L. Reiner
Exposure to perfluorinated alkyl acids (PFAAs) has been linked to many harmful health effects including reproductive disorders, developmental delays, and altered liver and kidney function. Most human exposure to environmental contaminants, including PFAAs

Tissue Distribution of Perfluoroalkyl Acids (PFAAs) and Health Status in Wild Mozambique Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) from Loskop Dam, Mpumalanga, South Africa

November 29, 2017
Jacqueline T. Bangma, Jessica L. Reiner, Hannes Botha, Theresa M. Cantu, Marco Gouws, Matthew P. Guillette, Jeremy P. Koelmel, Wilmien Luus-Powell, Olivia Rynders, Joseph Sara, Willem J. Smit, John Bowden
This study collected male Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) from Loskop Dam, Mpumalanga, South Africa in 2014 and 2016 to investigate the levels of 15 perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) across six tilapia tissues. Nine of the 15 PFAAs were detected

Associations between perfluorinated alkyl acids measured in blood and ovarian follicular fluid and ovarian function in women undergoing assisted reproductive treatment

June 26, 2017
Jessica A. Cloy-McCoy, Jacqueline T. Bangma, Jessica L. Reiner, John Bowden, John Schnorr, Michael Slowey, Tom O'Leary, Louis J. Guillette, Benjamin B. Parrott
Endocrine disrupting contaminants, in combination with other environmental variables, are associated with altered reproductive health. Assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures offer valuable opportunities to explore the connections between

Perfluorinated Alkyl Acids in the Plasma of American Alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) from Florida and South Carolina

April 4, 2017
Jessica L. Reiner, John Bowden, Ian Christie, Matthew P. Guillette, Russell H. Lowers, Arnold Brunell, Phillip M. Wilkinson, Jacqueline T. Bangma, Thomas R. Rainwater, Louis J. Guillette Jr., Martin Jones
This study was the first to quantitate fourteen perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) in 125 adult American alligators at twelve sites across the southeastern US. Of those fourteen PFAAs, nine were commonly detected. Males as a group (across all sites) showed a

Spatial variation in perfluoroalkyl acids in a population of wild American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWR) surrounding the Kennedy Space Center (KSC)

January 26, 2017
