Charactizeriation of biomarkers if mycotyxin effect

Mycotoxins contaminating food and feedstuff are a constant threat to the health of humans and animals; namely pigs are very susceptible to exposure. In the present collaborative approach a jejunal explant system will be used as a model for ex vivo exposure of tissue to deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZEN). Secretome of these cells as well as the cells themselves will be analysed for their protein content by gel-based proteomics. Proteins with differential abundance will be further tested for their suitability to be used as a signature for mycotoxin effect, preferably in body fluids of affected animals (obtained in a following in vivo experiment).
