Applications: Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2 as secondary metabolites of fungal species such as Aspergillus flavus or Aspergillus parasiticus growing on a variety of foods (peanuts, nuts, spices, cereals). Aflatoxins are a group of very carcinogenic mycotoxins with hepatotoxic effects. Aflatoxin is biotransformed to genotoxic intermediates by P450 Phase I enzymes, mainly CYP3A4 via aflatoxin B1 3-hydroxylation. Detoxification depends on Phase II enzymes, such as Glutathione S-Transferase and AFB(1)-aldehyde reductase (AFAR). Aflatoxin B1 is one of the most potent environmental mutagens and carcinogens known.
