Abstract The aim of the study was to verify the hypothesis that intoxication with low doses of mycotoxins leads to changes in the mRNA expression levels of nitric oxide synthase-1 and nitric oxide synthase-2 genes in tissues of the gastrointestinal tract and the liver. The experiment involved four groups of immature gilts with body weight of up to 25 kg which were orally administered zearalenone in a daily dose of 40 μg-kg BW group Z, n = 18, deoxynivalenol at 12 μg-kg BW group D, n = 18, zearalenone and deoxynivalenol group M, n = 18 or placebo group C, n = 21 over a period of 42 days. The lowest mRNA expression levels of nitric oxide synthase-1 and nitric oxide synthase-2 genes were noted in the sixth week of the study, in particular in group M. Our results suggest that the presence of low mycotoxin doses in feed slows down the mRNA expression of both nitric oxide synthase isomers, which probably lowers the concentrations of nitric oxide, a common precursor of inflammation.
