organotin

Any tin-based organic compound in wide use for marine anti-fouling paints, wood catalysts, plasticisers, slimicides, in industrial water systems and as fungicides. Human exposure results from contaminated seafood, agricultural products and drinking water. Blood levels of organotins may be high enough to act on retinoid X receptors and PPAR gamma, upregulating the adipogenic signalling pathway, which explains organotins’ obesogenic effects.

The highest frequency was detected in specimens from Birds' Island, indicating that this species is a reliable indicator of pollution from organotin compounds, mostly arising from paint from boats (Paz-Villarraga et al., 2015).

Moreover, in general, the biological activity of organotin compounds appears to be greatly influenced by the structure of the molecule and likely by the nuclearity of the complexes [16, 17].
