General description

Aflatoxin B2/AFB2 is a toxic mycotoxin.

Application

Aflatoxin B2 has been used as a standard in a study to find out aflatoxins in various foods, spices and feedstuffs by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). It has also been used as a standard to determine aflatoxins in honey by HPLC.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aflatoxin B2 is a hepatocarcinogen. Food contaminant produced by Aspergillus flavus, a common soil fungus. Aflatoxin B2/AFB2 may have dangerous hepatotoxic, teratogenic and carcinogenic actions on various forms of livestock.

Warning

Possibly carcinogenic.
