Catalog Number: 3976
Alternate Names: DON, Vomitoxin
Chemical Name: 3α,7α,15-Trihydroxy-12,13-epoxytrichothec-9-en-8-one
Biological Activity
Tricothecene 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.
