Cytochalasins are a group of about 20 known mycotoxins, which affect actin stress fibers, causing actin depolymerization. Cytochalasin A is a fungal toxin that inhibits glucose transport, actine polymerization and blocks the formation of microtubuli. Inhibits cell division. Inhibits HIV-1 protease.
