Accession:GO:0045122 term browser browse the term
Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of aflatoxin, a fungal metabolite found as a contaminant in moldy grains that induces liver cancer. Aflatoxin induces a G to T transversion at codon 249 of p53, leading to its inactivation. Aflatoxin is converted to a chemical carcinogen by P450.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: aflatoxin anabolism;   aflatoxin biosynthesis;   aflatoxin formation;   aflatoxin synthesis
