Endocrine active compounds with structural similarities to natural hormones such as 17β-estradiol (E2) and androgen are suspected to affect the human endocrine system by inducing hormone-dependent effects. This study aimed to detect the (anti-)estrogenic and (anti-)androgenic activities of mono-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) by yeast estrogen/androgen bioassay (YES/YAS). In addition, the mechanism and uptake of MEHP to receptors during agonistic and antagonistic activities were investigated through the activation signal recovery test and chromatographic analysis using liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Estrogenic and androgenic activities of MEHP were not observed. However, MEHP exhibited anti-estrogenic (IC50 = 125 μM) and anti-androgenic effects (IC50 = 736 μM). It was confirmed that these inhibitory effects of MEHP were caused by receptor-mediated activity of the estrogen receptor and non-receptor-mediated activity of the androgen receptor in an activation signal recovery test. When IC50 concentrations of anti-estrogenic and androgenic activity of MEHP were exposed to yeast cells, the uptake concentration observed was 0.0562 ± 0.0252 μM and 0.143 ± 0.0486 μM by LC-MS/MS analysis.
