Lead (Pb) is a testicular toxicant. In the present study, we investigated the effects of maternal Pb exposure during lactation on testicular development and steroidogenesis in male offspring. Maternal mice were exposed to different concentration of lead acetate (200 or 2000 ppm) through drinking water from postnatal day (PND) 0 to PND21. Results showed that Pb could be transported from dams to pups through milk. Maternal Pb exposure during lactation persistently disrupted testicular development and steroidogenesis in male offspring.
