Fumonisin B1 (FB1) is the predominant member of a family of mycotoxins produced by Fusarium moniliforme (Sheldon) and related fungi. Certain foods also contain the aminopentol backbone (AP1) that is formed upon base hydrolysis of the ester-linked tricarballylic acids of FB1. Both FB1 and, to a lesser extent, AP1 inhibit ceramide synthase due to structural(More)
Ochratoxin A (OTA) and citrinin (CIT) are two mycotoxins often occurring together in grains and cereals. Although both are nephrotoxic and can induce apoptosis, combination effects have not been examined up to now. Therefore, the aim of this study was to take a close look at the interactions of citrinin and OTA in cultured human proximal tubule-derived(More)
Fusarium proliferatum is able to produce fumonisins and is considered a pathogen of many economically important plants (e.g. corn, rice, asparagus) [1]. The occurrence of fumonisin FB1 inF. proliferatum infected asparagus spears from Germany was investigated using a liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS) method with(More)
