Roridin A and other Roridins and Verrucarins are produced by "The Black Mold", a common name for Stachybotrys family of molds that infect houses. Exposure to Roridin A can cause nasal irritation, abundance bodily fluid emission, and harm to the olfactory framework. Gastrointestinal exposure to Roridins can cause ulceration or bleeding from the large intestine, hypermotility, diarrhea. Long-term exposure to Roridins has been reported to cause cognitive disorders.
Roridin A from Fermentek is manufactured using a Myrothecium mold (which belongs to the Stachybotrys family). It is used as a sample to detect Black Mold infection in houses.
