BACKGROUND Aflatoxicol (AFL) is one of most the important metabolites of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1). AFL can be formed through enzymatic or synthetic reduction of AFB1. Various experimental and theoretical studies have been focused on the AFB1 due to its high toxicity and carcinogenicity. RESULTS The selective reduction of AFB1 carbonyls, molecular structure of AFL and its effect on toxicity has been studied here by the density functional theory (DFT) method. Although the toxicity of AFL is 18 times… CONTINUE READING
