Roquefortine C is a mycotoxin produced by Penicillium roqueforti and P. crustosum. This compound has been noted to cause serious toxic effects in cell lines. In some experiments, Roquefortine C has been used as a biomarker for penitrem A intoxication. Studies suggest that G protein-mediated signaling is a key component of Roquefortine C production by Penicillium roqueforti. Further experiments report that Roquefortine C is potentially a neurotoxic compound that activates and inhibits detoxification enzymes Mdr (P-glycoprotein, P-gp) and CYP (cytochrome P450-3A), respectively.
