Aflatoxins are produced by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus in oil-rich seed and grain crops and are a serious problem in agriculture, with aflatoxin B₁ being the most carcinogenic natural compound known. Sexual reproduction in these species occurs between individuals belonging to different vegetative compatibility groups (VCGs). We examined natural(More)
Soybean (Glycine max L.) is one of the main crops in Argentina. Most of the studies of pathogenicity in the Fusarium graminearum complex have focused on strains isolated from wheat and maize, and there is little information on strains isolated from soybean. Our objective in the present study was to compare the pathogenicity among soybean isolates of(More)
The natural occurrence of alternariol (AOH) and alternariol monomethyl ether (AME) in soya beans harvested in Argentina was evaluated. Both toxins were simultaneously detected by using HPLC analysis coupled with a solid phase extraction column clean-up. Characteristics of this in-house method such as accuracy, precision and detection and quantification(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze if cofactor pyrroquinoline quinone from Serratia sp. S119 is involved in the inorganic phosphate solubilization mechanism and in its ability to promote the plant growth. Site directed mutagenesis was performed to obtain a pqqE- minus mutant of strain Serratia sp. S119. The phosphate solubilization ability, gluconate and(More)
Soybean is one of the most economically important crops in Argentina and Brazil. However, there is limited information on the biodiversity of the FGSC from soybean as compared to other crops of large-scale growing such as wheat and maize. A phylogenetic recognition of the Fusarium graminearum species complex (FGSC) isolated from soybean in Argentina and(More)
