The toxicity mechanism of bisphenol A (BPA) to zebrafish (Danio rerio) was studied in the molecular level,by the method of zebrafish microarray and quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Zebrafish embryos were exposed to 0.5, 1.5 and 4.5 mg/L BPA for 8 days since fertilization. The results from microarray and validated by qRT-PCR showed that, 50 specific genes were up-or down-regulated, and dose-responses for them were significant (p < 0.05). This study demonstrates the genotoxicity of BPA. Moreover,according to their function and pathway analysis,it could support the mechanisms for the morphological toxicity and metabolize turbulence observed in prophase study.
