Mycotoxins: chemical, biological, and environmental aspects
This new book presents the most important data relating to mycotoxins giving basic information on their taxonomic classification, production and biosynthetic pathways, physical and chemical properties, biological effects and biochemical modes of action as well as the threat they pose to animal and human health. The first six chapters present general discussions involving toxigenic fungi and their toxins, the chief biosynthetic pathways of mycotoxins, their biological activities, modes of action, structure-activity relationships, and environmental aspects of mycotoxins and mycotoxicoses. More than 200 individual mycotoxins are then described in detail in the remaining twelve chapters. Extensive tables and indexes as well as a full bibliography for each chapter make this an invaluable reference text. The book is written for students and researchers in the fields of microbiology, mycology, biochemistry, chemistry of natural products, toxicology, pharmacology, human and veterinary medicine, food and agriculture, and environmental sciences.
