Application

Aflatoxin B1 is a carcinogenic compound that induces transversion of G to T at codon 249 of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. Aflatoxin B1 may be used as an internal standard when testing for aflatoxin contamination in food products.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aflatoxin B1 is a carcinogenic compound produced by Aspergillus flavus, a common soil fungus, that induces transversion of G to T at codon 249 of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. Aflatoxin B1 is a food contaminant and a hepatocarcinogen. Aflatoxin is biotransformed to genotoxic intermediates by P450 Phase I enzymes, mainly CYP3A4 via aflatoxin B1 3-hydroxylation. Detoxification depends on Phase II enzymes, such as Glutathione S-Transferase and AFB(1)-aldehyde reductase (AFAR). Aflatoxin B1 is a CYP1A2, CYP2A6, CYP2D6, and CYP3A family substrate.

Carcinogenesis and Epigenetics

Cancer research has revealed that the classical model of carcinogenesis, a three step process consisting of initiation, promotion, and progression, is not complete.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
