Effect of aflatoxin B1 on human platelet protein kinase C.
Cellular interactions and metabolism of aflatoxin: an update.
In vitro toxicity of aflatoxin B1 and its photodegradation products in HepG2 cells
TLDR
The results of the in vitro cytotoxicity assay indicate that Pw is less toxic than AFB1, and Po has almost no toxicity, which can be explained by the differences in the chemical nature of the various kinds of the test compounds.
Detoxification of Aflatoxin-Contaminated Maize by Neutral Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water
Aflatoxins, a group of extremely toxic mycotoxins produced by Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius, can occur as natural contaminants of certain agricultural commodities, particularly
MYCOTOXINS IN FOODS AND FEEDS 1-AFLATOXINS
TLDR
In animals, the aflatoxins cause liver damage, decreased milk production, reduced reproductively and suppressed immunity in animals consuming low dietary concentrations, and in humans the adverse effects ranged from acute hepatic toxicity to chronic disease such as liver cancer.

Protein kinases of rat liver during hepatocarcinogenesis induced by an azo dye.
TLDR
In hepatoma, the increase of the amount of R1 subunits was not associated with a concomitant increase of protein kinase type I activity, which seemed to indicate that, in these tissues, a pool of free R1Subunits could exist, and in hepatoma a phosvitin kinase band insensitive to cyclic nucleotides and heparin, inactive on casein, which was absent in normal liver.

Protein kinase in immunoprecipitate of DMBA-transformed epithelial cells with serum from tumour-bearing rabbits
TLDR
Data suggest that the alteration in protein phosphorylation may contribute to the transformed state in chemical carcinogen transformed epithelial cell an analogous event also occurs.
Activation of cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate-dependent protein kinase in H35 hepatoma and Chinese hamster ovary cells by a phorbol ester tumor promoter.
TLDR
These studies indicate that, while TPA does lead to the marked activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase in at least two cell types shown to be responsive to TPA, this activation may be only one of several rapid events which mediate the many specific effects of the phorbol esters.
Hormonal activation of the cAMP-dependent protein kinases in AtT20 cells. Preferential activation of protein kinase I by corticotropin releasing factor, isoproterenol, and forskolin.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that ACTH secretion from AtT20 cells is mediated by small changes in intracellular levels of cAMP and activation of only a small fraction of the total cytosolic cAMP-dependent protein kinase in these cells is required for maximal ACTH release.
Phosphorylated proteins as physiological effectors.
TLDR
Observations suggest that many different classes of regulatory substances achieve certain of their biological effects by altering the phosphorylation of specific proteins.
Aflatoxin—Human Colon Carcinogenesis?
TLDR
Aflatoxins are toxic mold metabolites of Aspergillus flavus, a common and widely distributed food spoilage fungus that has been identified in grains, coconuts, maze, oil seeds, and grains.
