Abstract: Deoxynivalenol (DON) is one of the most widely distributed and most important trichothecenes in moldy grains. DON is metabolized by plants and microorganisms into various masked mycotoxins, and these transformations are usually incomplete, resulting in complex poisoning symptoms and thereby increasing the safety risk of cereal crops and their by-products. This paper mainly reviews the transformation patterns of DON by various organisms and their effects on the type, distribution and toxicity of its masked forms, which is expect to provide reference for future research on the degradation of DON and its masked forms.

Key words: deoxynivalenol; plant transformation; microbial degradation; metabolism; masked mycotoxins
