15-Acetyldeoxynivalenol solution was used as a reference to develop enzyme immunoassay (EIA) techniques as one of the screening methods for 15-AcDon and its application in wheat.
Deoxynivalenol (DON) has a 12, 13 - epoxy group, three OH functions, and an a,Ã-unsaturated keto group. It is produced by various Fusarium spp. It is slightly soluble in water but highly soluble in polar solvents such as methanol, ethyl acetate and acetonitrile and is stable in organic solvents specially ethyl acetate and acetonitrile therefore making them highly suitable for storage. 15-Acetyldeoxynivalenol (15-AcDON) is a low molecular weight sesquiterpenoid trichothecene mycotoxin that basically means it is a monoacetyl analogue of DON. Furthermore it is one of the most common mycotoxin present in food and animal feed.
