Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Based on the experimental data on ERBA for the category members whose organic functional groups are similar with those of the target chemical, no oestrogen receptor binding affinity is predicted for Nonyl 3-(3,5-ditert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)propanoate (ERBA of 0.0). The category members used for read-across are classified the same as the target chemical: they are all non-binders to oestrogen receptor. Besides this, their structural alerts are similar with those of the target chemical.
Executive summary:

The chemical nonyl 3-(3,5-ditert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)propanoate which represents a structure with C9 alkyl chain from isomeric mixture of Reaction mass of isomers of: C7-9-alkyl 3-(3,5-di-trans-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl) propionate was evaluated by the OECD Toolbox modelling tool for its toxicity potential to reproduction. There is no experimental data available for the target chemical in the data bases of the Toolbox for the investigated endpoint. The prediction was based on the experimental data of chemicals assigned into the category.

The target chemical was classified as "Non binder, impaired OH or NH2 groups" by the profiling method "Estrogen Receptor Binding". The chemical were grouped according to their structural similarity (Tanimoto (70%, Atom pairs)), one of the primary grouping methods. Thereafter a refinement to reduce the number of matched chemicals was conducted by eradicating chemicals having another classification as "Non binder, impaired OH or NH2 groups". There were few chemicals assigned into the subcategory, the logPow values of which deviated significantly from the logPow of the target chemical. Therefore it was decided first to perform a prediction of ERBA within the category of chemicals with known ERBA without subcategorization and then subcategorize chemicals according their similarity in organic functional groups. ERBA of 0.0 was predicted for the target chemical, indicating no binding potential to oestrogen receptor.

The value can be used as an additional information for the read-across.
