2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether (BDE47) poses potential risks to reproduction and development, but the mechanism of its toxicity has not yet been elucidated. To explore the developmental toxicity of BDE47, mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs), which are ideal models for testing the developmental toxicity of environmental contaminants in vitro, were exposed to BDE47 (0.04 μM, 1 μM, 25 μM, or 100 μM) for 24 h or 48 h in this study.
