Project description:It is well known that environmental stress is one of the main factors that may alter homeostasis of human and animal organisms. Mycotoxins, which are found in foodstuffs and feedstuffs, belong to natural toxins which can affect the human and animal health. Fusarium toxins-induced cellular stress may cause the alterations in endocrine and intracellular response of the reproductive system and intestinal tract. The aim of the project will examine the effect of Fusarium toxins on ovarian and intestinal functions of pigs focused on the secretory activity of cells, proliferation and apoptosis through intracellular regulators of cell cycle. Due to the presence of mycotoxins in foodstuffs and feedstuffs is necessary determination of toxic effects in order to determination of health risk.
