Application

Aflatoxin B1 is a carcinogenic compound that induces transversion of G to T at codon 249 of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. Aflatoxin B1 may be used as an internal standard when testing for aflatoxin contamination in food products.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Aflatoxin B1 is a carcinogenic compound produced by Aspergillus flavus, a common soil fungus, that induces transversion of G to T at codon 249 of the p53 tumor suppressor gene. Aflatoxin B1 is a food contaminant and a hepatocarcinogen. 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 a CYP1A2, CYP2A6, CYP2D6, and CYP3A family substrate.

Warning

Possibly carcinogenic.
