Method for measuring antioxidant activity and its application to monitoring the antioxidant capacity of wines.
A novel method for measuring the antioxidant activity using N, N-dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine (DMPD) was developed. The radical cation of this compound gives a stable colored solution and a linearExpand

Occurrence of fusaproliferin, fumonisin B1, and beauvericin in maize from Italy
The occurrence of fusaproliferin (FP) was investigated in 22 samples of preharvest maize ears Fusarium rot, collected in 1994 in Italy. The most frequently recovered Fusarium species were FusariumExpand

Fusaproliferin production by Fusarium subglutinans and its toxicity to Artemia salina, SF-9 insect cells, and IARC/LCL 171 human B lymphocytes.
Fusarium subglutinans is an important pathogen of maize and other commodities worldwide. We examined MRC-115 and 71 other F. subglutinans strains from various geographic areas for their ability toExpand

Natural occurrence of beauvericin in preharvest Fusarium subglutinans infected corn ears in Poland
Fourteen samples of preharvest infected corn ears, collected in 1990-1991 from different Polish cornfields, were found to be highly infected by fusarium subglutinans. This species was recently shownExpand

Beauvericin production by Fusarium subglutinans from different geographical areas
The capability of sixty-five F. subglutinans, mostly from maize, isolates to produce beauvericin (BEA) was evaluated. Strains from various geographic areas were cultured on autoclaved corn kernelsExpand

Isolation and characterization of fusaproliferin, a new toxic metabolite from Fusarium proliferatum.
A new toxic sesterterpene, named fusaproliferin, was purified from corn kernel cultures (120 mg/kg dry culture) of a strain of Fusarium proliferatum isolated from corn ear rot in northern Italy. TheExpand
