Endotoxins are toxic compounds from bacterial origin. The most well-known endotoxins are lipopolysaccharides (LPS), which are part of the cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria. During normal bacterial division and lysis, LPS molecules are released from the bacterial outer membrane into the environment, such as the air, water, soil and gastrointestinal tract (GIT).

The synergistic effect of mycotoxins and endotoxins
Mycotoxins and endotoxins are both toxins that present a health risk to production animals, albeit of different origins. Mycotoxins and endotoxins are often present together in the gastrointestinal tract of production animals and cause severe economic losses. In addition, their adverse effect on the animals health and performance can be enhanced synergistically.
