Genotoxicity of Fusarium mycotoxins (nivalenol, fusarenon-X, T-2 toxin, and zearalenone) in Chinese hamster V79-E cells in vitro.

Abstract

The mycotoxins nivalenol, fusarenon-X, T-2 toxin and zearalenone were checked for clastogenic damage, induction of SCEs and cell cycle delay in Chinese hamster V79-E cells in vitro. The trichothecenes nivalenol, fusarenon-X and T-2 toxin provoked a marked toxicity as especially expressed by cell cycle delay. As compared to toxicity, they are weak clastogens… (More)
