Study Detail

TitleDegeneration of aflatoxin gene clusters in Aspergillus flavus from Africa and North America.
Study TypeOther
Abstract Aspergillus flavus is the primary causal agent of food and feed contamination with the toxic fungal metabolites aflatoxins. Aflatoxin-producing potential of A. flavus varies among genotypes and among vegetative compatibility groups (VCGs). The genes involved in aflatoxin biosynthesis are clustered t .. [more]
