Ochratoxin A, a toxic metabolite produced by Aspergillus ochraceus. van der Merwe, K. J.; Steyn, P. S.; Fourie, L.; Scott, D. B.; Theron, J. J. Nature (London, United Kingdom) (1965), 205(4976), 1112-13 A review on ochratoxin A occurrence and effects of processing of cereal and cereal derived food products. S.C. Duarte, , A. Pena, C.M. Lino. Food Microbiology Volume 27, Issue 2, April 2010, Pages 187–198.
Potent nephrotoxin implicated in porcine nephropathy. Acute oral LD50 in the male rat 30.3 mg/kg body-weight and in the female rat 21.4 mg/kg body-weight. Recent assessments of toxicity suggest that this compound may be carcinogenic and genotoxic. chicken LD50 oral 3300ug/kg (3.3mg/kg)
