Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Fungal metabolite believed to cause leukoencephalomalacia in horses.

Fumonisin B1 acts as a hepatocarcinogen and causes hepatotoxicity in rats. In horses, it causes leukoencephalitis, and in pigs, it causes pulmonary edema syndrome. In China and southern parts of Africa, it is linked with high incidence of esophageal cancer in humans. It acts as an inhibitor of sphingosine N-acyltransferase enzyme.

Application

Fumonisin B1 from Fusarium moniliforme has been used:
• as a standard in the analysis of mycotoxins in caecal content obtained from adult pigs
• in the study of the effect of fumonisin B1 on the metabolism of prion protein (PrP) isoforms and the synthesis of scrapie prion protein PrPSc and
• in the study of the toxic effects of fumonisin B1 on explants obtained from pig jejunum.

General description

Fumonisin B1 is a mycotoxin found in the fungus Fusarium moniliforme,and this toxin can also be obtained from corn infected with the same fungus. It shares similarities with sphingosine and okadaic acid (OA).
