  • In the present study, the comprehensive hormonal effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) were investigated, and the levels and distribution of four types of EDCs in the main tributaries of Xiaoqing River in Jinan section were determined by using the chemically activated luciferase gene expression (CALUX). The results showed that the annual mean toxicity equivalent concentrations of dioxins, estrogens and glucocorticoid ranged from 0.020 to 0.040 ng 2,3,7,8-TCDD TEQ·L-1, 0.007 to 0.050 ng E2-eq·L-1 and 1.8 to 9.6 ng Dex-eq·L-1. The levels of dioxin and estrogen were relatively low, and the risk of contamination by androgen endocrine disruptors was low. Glucocorticoid was the biggest contributor to the contamination of endocrine disruptors. There were no obvious seasonal and regional differences in detection levels of dioxin. Seasonal changes of estrogen were obvious. Its detection rate was high in spring and winter. The seasonal distribution of glucocorticoid was not obvious, while its regional distribution was significant. Moreover, its detection frequency and content in tributaries in agricultural areas were significantly lower compared with the tributaries in residential and commercial areas.
