General description

Ochratoxin A is one of the mycotoxins typically produced by the species of Aspergillus genus. It is a commonly found secondary metabolite in cereals, coffee, grape must, wine, beer, etc.


Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
Ochratoxin A may be used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in:
  • Traditional Chinese medicines by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS).
  • Wine samples by reversed-phase HPLC with fluorescence detection (HPLC-FLD).

The ochratoxin A (OTA) polyketide synthase otapks gene has been cloned from Penicillium verrucosum. A P. verrucosum mutant in which the otapksPV gene has been interrupted cannot synthesize ochratoxin A. The protein is most similar to the citrinin polyketide synthase...

By taking advantage of the intrinsic fluorescence of ochratoxin A (OTA), we present a fluorescence anisotropy approach for rapid analysis of the interactions between OTA and aptamers. The specific binding of OTA with a 36-mer aptamer can induce increased fluorescence...
