Fumonisins are a group of mycotoxins derived from species of the fungus Fusarium. Fumonisin B1 is a carcinogenic, toxic secondary metabolite that inhibits sphingomyelin biosynthesis in neuronal cells by impairing ceramide synthase. It is the most prevalent member of the fumonisin group and is isolated from Fusarium moniliforme (aka Fusarium verticilliodies). FB1 occurs mainly in corn, wheat and other cereals.
Hydrolyzed fumonisin B1 (aminopentol) results from hydrolysis of the O-acyl bonds of fumonisin B1 and lacks tricarballylic acid functions. HFB1 may be found in alkaline cooked foods such as masa and tortillas. Hydrolyzed fumonisin B1 has been found to inhibit ceramide synthase more weakly than its non-hydrolyzed form.
