What does Fumadil-B mean in Apiculture Dictionary?
The old trade name for Fumagillin, Bicyclohexyl-ammonium fumagillin, is a whitish dissolvable antibiotic powder discovered in 1952; some beekeepers blend this with sugar syrup and provided to bees to manage Nosema illness. Its used in beekeeping is banned within the European Union because it is a suspected teratogen (triggers birth problems). Fumagillin can block blood vessel development by binding to an enzyme known as methionine aminopeptidase. Targeted gene disturbance of methionine aminopeptidase 2 results in an embryonic gastrulation problem and endothelial mobile development arrest. Fumadil is made of the fungus that triggers stonebrood, Aspergillus fumigatus. by CarieReport definition
