Effects of AFB1 on splenic lymphocyte phenotypes and cytokine expression were investigated in male F344 rats. Single-dose exposure to AFB1 decreased expression of CD8+ T cells and CD3CD8a+ NK cells. Expressions of IL-4 and IFN-γ by CD4+ T cells, IL-4 and IFN-γ by CD8a+ cells, and TNF-α by NK cells were also inhibited; Repeated AFB1 exposure significantly decreased expression of IL-4 by CD4+ T cells and significantly increased expressions of pro-IFN-γ by CD4+ T cells and TNF-α by NK cells.
