Comparative studies on growth patterns and metabolic status of aflatoxin-producing and non-producing strains of Aspergillus flavus



Comparative studies on growth patterns and metabolic status of aflatoxin-producing and non-producing strains of Aspergillus flavus



Current Science 82(12): 1425-1426



A study was conducted to understand the nature of strain-specific aflatoxin production in A. flavus, taking into account its growth and metabolism. The toxinogenic and non-toxinogenic strains, CMI 102566 and CMI 93803, respectively, were maintained on slats of Czapek-Dox agar at 30 degrees C. Aflatoxins were extracted from the culture filtrate with chloroform and separated by thin layer chromatography using the solvent system.
