Investigation of a mechanism for Leydig cell tumorigenesis by linuron in rats.
The hypothesized mode of action for the liver tumorigenicity of AR antagonists such as vinclozolin and linuron is as follows: The antiandrogens block AR function and negative feedback of the pituitary, so move luteinizing hormone is produced, which in turn leads to increased production of androgens by testicular Leydig cells.
