Interaction of 14C-labelled fumonisin B mycotoxins with primary rat hepatocyte cultures.

An in vitro study on the interaction and biotransformation of the [14C]fumonisin B mycotoxins was conducted, using primary rat hepatocyte cultures and subcellular enzyme preparations. At the same concentration, fumonisin B2 (FB2) exhibited a higher cytotoxicity and specific binding to primary rat hepatocytes than fumonisin B1 (FB1). However, if the… (More)
