The cytotoxic effects of aflatoxin B1 and fumonisin B1 on cultured human cells.
Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) and Fumonisin B1 (FB1), potentially cytotoxic and carcinogenic mycotoxins are common contaminants of agricultural commodities in South Africa and thus could be detrimental to the human immune system. ...
Fumonisin B1 induced antioxidant response in C57BL/6 male mice brain.
Background: Fumonisin B1 (FB1), a mycotoxin produced by the Fusarium species, contaminates maize. In South Africa maize is a dietary staple and FB1 endangers human and animal health. FB1 is known to have neurodegenerative ...
Characterisation of Fumonisin B1 toxicity in a cancerous liver cell line- induction of tissue transglutaminase and the endoplasmic reticulum stress pathway.
Fumonisin B1 (FB1) is a mycotoxin which is well characterised as a contaminant of maize and maize-based products worldwide, especially in South Africa. Its toxic effects have been associated with hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity ...
The possible implication of selected Fusarium Mycotoxins in the aetiology of brain cancer.
The central nervous system is a potential site of action for the Fusarium mycotoxin Fumonisin B1 (FB1), and is exemplified in horses by the disease equine leukoencephalomalacia. Structurally resembling sphingoid bases, FB1 ...
Development and application of an ELISA method of analysis for fumonisins
Fumonisins, mycotoxins produced by the fungus, Fusarium moniliforme, which grows on maize, are a major worldwide agricultural problem. Consumption of contaminated maize feeds causes a wide variety of toxic effects in animals ...
