Melatonin Protects T-2 toxin-induced neuronal stress through Acetylcholinesterase & Cytochrome P450 receptor-mediated signaling

T-2 toxin is one of the potent mycotoxins responsible for several pathological conditions in humans and animals. This nonvolatile low molecular weight toxin compound shows strong resistance to degradation at room temperature as well as at autoclaving temperature. The inhibition of acetylcholinesterase and cytochrome P450 receptor by T-2 toxin leads to many pathological conditions as these two receptors involved in many pathways. Here, we have used melatonin as a protection agent against T-2 toxin in both receptor systems. Using molecular docking, molecular dynamics simulation and free energy calculations we have shown that melatonin can act as a potent inhibitor of T-2 toxin in acetylcholinesterase and cytochrome P450.
