Deoxynivalenol (DON) Gold FTRTest
Cat. No.: 5127DONG
Deoxynivalenol (DON) belongs to the group of trichothecenes produced essentially by a broad range of Fusarium moulds of which F. graminearum and F. culmorum are the most important. These fungi typically develop during prolonged cool, wet growing and harvest seasons to produce Fusarium head blight in cereal crop. DON, also known as ‘vomitoxin’, because of its potent emetic effects in swine, is most often associated with Fusarium head blight. Some fungal strains make DON by a 3-acetylated precursor (mainly in Europe and Asia) and others produce a 15-acetylated precursor (mainly in North and South America). Significant concentrations of DON are frequently detected in wheat, barley, corn and oats, while lower levels are usually found in rye, sorghum and rice.
