Abstract

To evaluate the rate at which the four main aflatoxins (aflatoxins B1, B2, G1 and G2) are able to cross the luminal membrane of the rat small intestine, a study about intestinal absorption kinetics of these mycotoxins has been made. In situ results obtained showed that the absorption of aflatoxins in rat small intestine is a very fast process that follows first-order kinetics, with an absorption rate constant (ka) of 5.84 +/- 0.05 (aflatoxin B1), 4.06 +/- 0.09 (aflatoxin B2), 2.09 +/- 0.03 (aflatoxin G1) and 1.58 +/- 0.04 (aflatoxin G2) h-1, respectively.
