Effects of trace elements on growth and aflatoxin production of Aspergillus flavus






Korean Journal of Veterinary Public Health 12(1): 85-108

Effects of trace elements on growth and aflatoxin production of Aspergillus flavus

The effects of trace elements (zinc, copper, manganese, iron, molybdenum and boron) on growth and afltoxin production in A. flavus was studied. In Mn-depleted medium fungal growth was significantly (P<0.01) inhibited, while in Zn-depleted medium there was a significant (P<0.01) reduction in aflatoxin production compared with nondepleted medium. Cu-depleted medium supported least aflatoxin production.
