Patulin is a mycotoxin produced by several species of fungi and is commonly found in fruits. It is regulated in several countries at a tolerance level of 50 micrograms/Kg. We investigated its ability to inhibit cell growth in hepatoma tissue culture and its ability to inhibit protein synthesis. It was found to be cytostatic at concentration of 1 microgram… CONTINUE READING
