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. ...
The synthesis of xanthone derivatives and their enzymatic conversion and inhibition of aflatoxin biosynthesis.
The biosynthesis of Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) has been the subject of conflicting speculation and numerous reviews. The currently accepted scheme for the aflatoxin pathway is based on data obtained from feeding studies using ...
A cytotoxic evaluation of aflatoxin B1, zearalenone and their epoxide derivatives using human cell lines.
Since the discovery of mycotoxins in food, the thrust of biochemical and toxicological research has been carried out on animals which has proven to be uncoordinated and not easily extrapolated to humans. Over the last ...
The immunocytochemical and electrophoretic localisation of aflatoxin B1-binding proteins in isolated liver mitochondria.
Mitochondria perform functions which are central to the life of most eukaryotic cells. These organelles can be considered the ultimate energy power house of a living cell. The role of mitochondria in cancer phenotype remains ...
The occurrence and detection of aflatoxin-macromolecular conjugates in humans.
Aflatoxin Bi (AFBi), a highly toxic fungal metabolite (mycotoxin) of certain strains of Aspergillus, has long been known to be carcinogenic in animal species. Accumulation of epidemiological evidence led to its classification, ...
