Metabolism of T-2 toxin by rat brain homogenate. Academic Article uri icon


  • HT-2 toxin was the sole metabolite formed when T-2 toxin was treated with homogenate from brain without its blood content. Homogenate from brain with its full blood content produced--besides HT-2 toxin--T-2 triol, neosolaniol, 4-deacetylneosolaniol and T-2 tetraol, ie the same metabolites formed by incubation of T-2 toxin with whole rat blood.
