Use of aflatoxin-producing ability medium to distinguish aflatoxin-producing strains of Aspergillus flavus



Use of aflatoxin-producing ability medium to distinguish aflatoxin-producing strains of Aspergillus flavus



Applied and Environmental Microbiology 41(3): 697-699



Aflatoxin-producing ability medium was tested for its ability to distinguish aflatoxin-positive from aflatoxin-negative strains of Aspergillus flavus in naturally occurring populations from corn at harvest. All of the aflatoxin-positive strains and some of the aflatoxin-negative strains produced aflatoxins when cultured on cracked corn. Although the data indicate that aflatoxin-producing ability medium is not entirely reliable in distinguishing potential aflatoxin-producing strains of A. flavus from nontoxigenic strains, it is significant that the medium did not yield false-positives.
