Fungal Metabolites

This handbook compiles authoritative information about fungal metabolites and their chemistry and biotechnology. The first in the reference work series “Phytochemicals”, and written by a team of international expert authors, this book provides reference information ranging from the description of fungal natural products, over their use e.g. as anticancer agents, to microbial synthesis, even spanning to the production of secondary metabolites on industrial scale. On the other hand it also describes global health issues related to aflatoxin production in foods and agriculture, including perspectives for detoxification.

The Toxicology of Aflatoxins: Human Health, Veterinary, and Agricultural Significance

Aflatoxins, natural fungal toxins found in foods and animal feeds, have great public health significance. This book presents the basic and applied toxicology of aflatoxins, including analytical identification, agricultural and veterinary implications, toxicology and carcinogenesis in humans, and economic and regulatory problems associated with aflatoxin contamination and control.

Key Features
* Molecular mechanisms of aflatoxin toxicity
* Analytical issues in sampling and analysis.

The Chemistry of Mycotoxins

by: Stefan Bräse, Franziska Gläser, Carsten Kramer, Stephanie Lindner, Anna M. Linsenmeier, Kye-Simeon Masters, Anne C. Meister, Bettina M. Ruff, Sabilla Zhong
The biological activity of mycotoxins ranges from weak and/or sometimes positive effects, such as antibacterial activity (see penicillin derivatives derived from Penicillium strains) to strong mutagenic (e. g. aflatoxins, patulin), carcinogenic (e. g. aflatoxins), teratogenic, neurotoxic (e. g. ochratoxins), nephrotoxic (e. g. fumonisins, citrinin), hepatotoxic, and immunotoxic (e. g. ochratoxins, diketopiperazines) activity.
Nowadays, many laboratories around the world are specialized in the detection of mycotoxins in food products and contaminated material found in housing.
