Application

Ochratoxin A has been used as a mycotoxin:
  • to test its effect on metabolism and hypoxia in human embryonic kidney (HEK293) cells
  • to test its cytotoxic effects in bovine mammary epithelial cells
  • as a standard for gamma radiation studies with food products and in cytotoxic studies using Hep G2 cells

Packaging

1, 5, 25 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ochratoxin A (OTA), a renal toxin, is produced majorly by Aspergillus and Penicillium fungal species. It is immunotoxic, teratogenic myelotoxic, and mutagenic. It effectively interrupts the intestinal barrier functions. OTA displays a long elimination half-life and stimulates the major inflammatory cytokines release.
Ochratoxin A is a mycotoxin found in food that is nephrotoxic and carcinogenic in the kidney and induces differentiation in cloned renal cell lines. Increases endoplasmic reticulum ATP-dependent Ca2+ pump activity.
