Further Mycotoxins


Deoxynivalenol is a naturally occurring mycotoxin that is toxic to humans and mammals. The vomitoxin is produced by fungi of the genus Fusarium, e.g. B. from Fusarium culmorum and Fusarium graminearum, which are generally found on various types of cereals (wheat, corn, barley, oats, rye) and in processed products (malt, beer and bread). Chemically, deoxynivalenol belongs to the group of trichothecenes.


Zearalenone (ZEA) is a mycotoxin that is produced by various Fusarium species. Alongside deoxynivalenol, it is the most frequently found toxin in feedstuffs in grain samples. Zearalenone itself is poisonous, but it can be converted into an even more toxic compound in the organism (alpha or beta zearalenone).
