  • product details

The Kernel Fumonisin ELISA Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of Fumonisin in cereals, dried meat, fish, feed, milk and seed. Fumonisins are toxins produced by Fusarium species that grow on several agricultural commodities, mainly corn, in the field or during storage. More than ten chemical forms of Fumonisins have been isolated, of which Fumonisin B1 is the most prevalent in contaminated corn and is believed to be the most toxic. 

Fumonisin B1 is hepatotoxic and nephrotoxic in all animal species tested. Fumonisin B2 is a structural analog of Fumonisin B1. Fumonisin B2 is more cytotoxic than Fumonisin B1. Fumonisin B2 inhibits sphingosine acyltransferase.
