Description
Fumonisin B2 is a minor analogue of a family of potent mycotoxins produced by various Fusarium species, associated with animal toxicity worldwide. To date much of the research on the pharmacology of the fumonisins has focused on fumonisin B1. It is generally accepted that fumonisin B2 acts on ceramide biosynthesis, however, the pharmacology of the minor analogues is less well explored.

Fumonisin B2 is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Limited water solubility.
