Conclusions: The dose-response setup allowed us to determine the most sensitive pathways affected by TBT, mostly related to the steroid biosynthesis, and general cell viability and development. Its covalent binding to RXR receptors seems to be the responsible for their specific disruption but also could be involved in its general toxicity along with an unspecific heavy metal poisoning. Transcriptomic general toxicity was related to a developmental delay which was in agreement with previous morphometric results. Other properties traditionally attributed to TBT as obesogenity only appeared at higher concentrations which were...
