The presence of this mold is of particular concern because several toxic secondary metabolites (e.g., macrocyclic trichothecenes
and saratoxins) have been isolated from Stachybotrys chartarum.
This "toxic black mold" produces a mycotoxin called trichothecene
. Stachybotrys is rarely found outdoors.
Among these toxins are trichothecenes
such as deoxynivalenol (DON), nivalenol (NIV), T-2 toxin, HT-2 toxin and diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS), zearalenone (ZEN), fumonisins and fusarins .
In this study we have demonstrated that SG, a macrocylic trichothecene
produced by S.
Involvement of ABC transporter proteins in trichothecene
Satratoxin G (SG) is a macrocyclic trichothecene
mycotoxin produced by Stachybotrys chartarum, the "black mold" suggested to contribute etiologically to illnesses associated with water-damaged buildings.
In the present study, the macrocyclic trichothecene
satratoxin G was highly cytotoxic to exposed cells with and without bacterial exposure.
The authors presented an interesting pilot serologic investigation for IgG and IgM antibodies to roridin (a macrocyclic trichothecene
mycotoxin produced by Stachybotrys chartarum) and found no elevation of antibodies in the index case, an individual with repeated exposure to a water-damaged building.
