    Fumonisin B1

    $114.80 - $401.80
    Fumonisin B1 is a major analogue of a family of potent mycotoxins produced by various Fusarium species, associated with animal toxicity worldwide. In vitro, fumonisin B1 inhibits sphingosine N-acyl-transferase (ceramide synthase) and blocks the growth of axons.

    Fumonisin B1 is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
