Fusarin acid has an immunotoxic effect and leads to MAPK activation in mononuclear blood cells (Dhani S et al. 2017). It has an inhibitory effect on dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (enzyme that converts dopamine to norepinephrine), has an antihypertensive effect. Synergistic effects with other mycotoxins are possible, e.g. with deoxynivalenol (DON).
