The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of heat-killed baker's yeast (HKBY), the cell wall of baker's yeast (CWBY), and cell wall (1→3)-β-d-glucan of baker's yeast (BGBY) to bind aflatoxin B(AFB) in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) spiked with 0.5 μg/mL AFB. Baker's yeast ( Saccharomyces cerevisiae) was heat killed by autoclaving at 121°C for 10 min. The cell wall was physically extracted, and (1→3)-β-d-glucan was extracted by a modified method. The concentration of AFBwas determined by high-performance liquid chromatography after exposure to binders for three contact times, 30 min, 5 h, and 24 h, at room temperature. AFBbinding by HKBY, CWBY, and BGBY was 6.30 to 46.34%. The lowest binding capacity was found for HKBY with a contact time of 30 min, and the highest binding capacity was found for BGBY with a contact time of 24 h. Among binders, CWBY had the highest binder-AFBcomplex stability during washing with PBS, and the lowest stability was found for HKBY complexes. Results of this study indicated that BGBY was the most effective binder, and more exposure to BGBY removes more AFBfrom PBS.

Changes in cell wall structure of four strains of Sacccharomyces cerevisiae species (brewer's, baker's and probiotic yeast) after culturing on deproteinated potato juice water (DPJW) with diverse addi...
β-Glucans are naturally occurring polysaccharides that are produced by bacteria, fungi and yeast. They are considered immunostimulants in fish acting on non-specific defense mechanism. Yeast-derived ...
The antiviral effects of beta-glucan, an immunostimulatory agent were studied in zebrafish both in vitro and in vivo. Here we show that zebrafish ZF4 cells as well as whole fish primed with yeast β-g...
Nagilactones are norditerpene dilactones isolated from the root bark of Podocarpus nagi. Although nagilactone E has been reported to show antifungal activities, its activity is weaker than that of ant...
To obtain yeast and bacteria from ruminal fluids that possess aflatoxin B (AFB ) detoxifying ability for use in animal feed.
There is a lot of evidence to show that the yeast beta-glucan has immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective effects.However,few work was done on the relationship between yeast ba...
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of the potential prebiotic beta-glucan on the intestinal microflora, the bacterial enzyme activity (beta-glucuronidase and beta-glucosidase...
This prospective cohort study focuses on the relationship between maternal environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) and maternal aflatoxin B1 exposure and birth outcomes, particularly infan...
Intraabdominal fungal infections with Candida are constantly increasing. Their diagnosis and treatment is difficult. Morbidity and mortality are high. Β-D-Glucan has been proposed as a ma...
Invasive candidiasis has a high mortality rate, around 40%. Outcome remains tightly linked to the time of treatment administration. Routine microbiological techniques give results too late...
Furano-furano-benzopyrans that are produced by ASPERGILLUS from STERIGMATOCYSTIN. They are structurally related to COUMARINS and easily oxidized to an epoxide form to become ALKYLATING AGENTS. Members of the group include AFLATOXIN B1; aflatoxin B2, aflatoxin G1, aflatoxin G2; AFLATOXIN M1; and aflatoxin M2.
A species of the genus SACCHAROMYCES, family Saccharomycetaceae, order Saccharomycetales, known as "baker's" or "brewer's" yeast. The dried form is used as a dietary supplement.
A potent hepatotoxic and hepatocarcinogenic mycotoxin produced by the Aspergillus flavus group of fungi. It is also mutagenic, teratogenic, and causes immunosuppression in animals. It is found as a contaminant in peanuts, cottonseed meal, corn, and other grains. The mycotoxin requires epoxidation to aflatoxin B1 2,3-oxide for activation. Microsomal monooxygenases biotransform the toxin to the less toxic metabolites aflatoxin M1 and Q1.
Cells, usually bacteria or yeast, which have partially lost their cell wall, lost their characteristic shape and become round.
In glycogen or amylopectin synthesis, the enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a segment of a 1,4-alpha-glucan chain to a primary hydroxy group in a similar glucan chain. EC 126.96.36.199.
