General description

Aflatoxins are metabolites of fungus, that are mainly seen in feeds and foods. Aflatoxin M1 is a hydroxylated metabolite of aflatoxin B1. It is liberated in milk, urine and produced in liver after receiving aflatoxin B1.

Application

Aflatoxin M1 has been used as a standard to investigate the incidence and occurrence of aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in Brazilian milk and infant formula. It has also been used as standard to investigate the incidence and occurrence of aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in dairy products produced in Brazil.
Aflatoxin M1 is both a hepatotoxic and hepatocarcinogenic mycotoxin that has been shown to cause immunosuppression in animals.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aflatoxin M1 possesses hepatocarcinogenic properties.

Warning

Possibly carcinogenic.
