Cat. No. 3976
Alternative Names: DON, Vomitoxin
Chemical Name: 3α,7α,15-Trihydroxy-12,13-epoxytricho
Biological ActivityTricothecene mycotoxin and potent protein synthesis inhibitor. Exhibits cytotoxic activity in vivo via the ribotoxic stress response. Induces p38-mediated gene expression and apoptosis in leukocytes; activity results in systemic expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and other proinflammatory cytokines. Also induces migration of NF-κB into the nucleus.
