Exposure to mycotoxins through dietary food intake involves a highly complex scenario where co-contamination of different mycotoxins has been frequently demonstrated. On the other hand, the effect of the interaction of mycotoxins with other generally considered beneficial food components, as the antioxidants, has been scarcely studied. The main goal of the present work was to assess the cytotoxic effects on Caco-2 cells of the mycotoxins deoxynivalenol (DON) and ochratoxin A (OTA), alone or combined, and to explore potential protective effects of resveratrol (RES), an antioxidant frequently found in wine. In parallel, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production has also been studied as a first approach to understand the underlying mechanism of cytotoxicity. Results indicate a higher toxic effect of the mycotoxins when they are co-exposed. This increase in cytotoxicity was not accompanied by an increase in ROS production. The co-exposure of OTA or DON with RES did not result in a decrease in cytotoxicity; on the contrary, it resulted in increased cytotoxicity not associated with an increase in ROS production.

UPLC-MS/MS analysis of ochratoxin A metabolites produced by Caco-2 and HepG2 cells in a co-culture system González Arias, Cyndia A.; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Rojas-García, A. E.; Sanchís Almenar, Vicente; Ramos Girona, Antonio J. (Elsevier, 2017-09-19)Ochatoxin A (OTA) is one of the most important mycotoxins based on its toxicity. The oral route is the main gateway of entry of OTA into the human body, and specialized epithelial cells constitute the first barrier. The ...
Multidetection of urinary ochratoxin A, deoxynivalenol and its metabolites: pilot time-course study and risk assessment in Catalonia, Spain Vidal Corominas, Arnau; Cano Sancho, German; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Sanchís Almenar, Vicente (Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2016)The presence of two main mycotoxins, ochratoxin A (OTA) and deoxynivalenol (DON), is widespread in cerealbased foodstuffs marketed in Europe. The objectives of this study were to develop and validate a multi-detection analytical ...
Determination of aflatoxins, deoxynivalenol, ochratoxin A and zearalenone in wheat and oat based bran supplements sold in the Spanish market Vidal Corominas, Arnau; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Cano Sancho, German; Sanchís Almenar, Vicente (Elsevier, 2013)The main objective of this study was to assess the exposure of Catalonian (Spain) population to AFs. Thus, two sub-objectives were considered: 1) to assess the occurrence of AFs in food marketed in Catalonia, and 2) to ...
