T-2 toxin ELISA
Cat. No.: 5121TOX
T-2 toxin is one of a family of closely related compounds called trichothecenes produced by several Fusarium species. There are more than 20 naturally occurring compounds produced by Fusarium species which contain similar structures, including diacetoxyscirpenal, nivalenol, diacetylnivalenol, deoxynivalenol (DON), HT-2 toxin and fusaron X. T-2 toxin and related compounds have been implicated in a disease known as mouldy corn toxicosis of swine, symptoms of which include refusal to eat, lack of weight gain, digestive disorders and diarrhea, ultimately leading to death. T-2 toxin is toxic to rats, trout and calves with oral LD50 values of 3.8, 6.1 and 0.6 mg/kg, respectively. T-2 toxin is also thought to be one of the toxins involved in the human disease alimentary toxic aleukia and stachybotryotoxicoses of horses but is not thought to be carcinogenic. T-2 toxins are often detected in cereal grains, mainly corn and wheat, and in feed. EuroProxima developed a kit for T-2 Toxin with a 100% cross-reactivity with T-2 toxin and 12.7% cross-reactivity with acetyl-T-2 toxin with a limit of detection for T-2 toxin of be 50 µg/kg (ppb).
