Abstract
Consumption of food or feed contaminated with fumonisin B1 (FB1), a mycotoxin produced by Fusarium verticillioides, can lead to disease in humans and animals. The present study was conducted to examine the effect of FB1 intake on the intestinal immune system. Piglets were used as a target and as a model species for humans since their gastro-intestinal tract is very similar. The animals were orally exposed to a low dose of FB1 (1 mg/kg body weight FB1) for 10 days which did not result in any clinical signs. However, when compared to non-exposed animals, FB1-exposed animals showed a longer shedding of F4+ enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) following infection and a reduced induction of the antigen-specific immune response following oral immunization. Further analyses to elucidate the mechanisms behind these observations revealed a reduced intestinal expression of IL-12p40 and an impaired function of intestinal dendritic cells, with decreased upregulation of MHC-II and a reduced T cell stimulatory capacity upon stimulation. Taken together, these results indicate an FB1-mediated reduction of in vivo DC maturation.
