General description

Zearalenone is one of the estrogenic metabolites produced by Fusarium species. It is usually found to co-occur with trichothecenes.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
Zearalenone has been used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in:
  • Beer samples by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).

It may be used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in:
  • Cereals by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
  • Maize samples by high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS).

10,11-Dehydrocurvularin is a prevalent fungal phytotoxin with heat shock response and immune-modulatory activities. It features a dihydroxyphenylacetic acid lactone polyketide framework with structural similarities to resorcylic acid lactones like radicicol or zearalenone. A genomic locus was identified from the dehydrocurvularin
