Deciphering the Cryptic Genome: Genome-wide Analyses of the Rice Pathogen Fusarium fujikuroi Reveal Complex Regulation of Secondary Metabolism and Novel Metabolites
The fungus Fusarium fujikuroi causes “bakanae” disease of rice due to its ability to produce gibberellins (GAs), but it is also known for producing harmful mycotoxins. However, the genetic capacityExpand

Biosynthesis of the red pigment bikaverin in Fusarium fujikuroi: genes, their function and regulation
Fusarium secondary metabolites are structurally diverse, have a variety of activities and are generally poorly understood biosynthetically. The F. fujikuroi polyketide synthase gene bik1 wasExpand

Metabolism of anthocyanins and their phenolic degradation products by the intestinal microflora.
Anthocyanins are suggested to be responsible for protective effects against cardiovascular diseases and certain forms of cancer. Although previous studies have implicated that intact anthocyanidinExpand

A Prospective Study of Growth and Biomarkers of Exposure to Aflatoxin and Fumonisin during Early Childhood in Tanzania
Background: Aflatoxin and fumonisin are toxic food contaminants. Knowledge about effects of their exposure and coexposure on child growth is inadequate. Objective: We investigated the associationExpand

Nitrate and nitrite in the diet: how to assess their benefit and risk for human health.
Nitrate is a natural constituent of the human diet and an approved food additive. It can be partially converted to nitrogen monoxide, which induces vasodilation and thereby decreases blood pressure.Expand

Determination of mycotoxin exposure in Germany using an LC-MS/MS multibiomarker approach.
SCOPE In this study, the exposure of a German population (n = 101) to mycotoxins was assessed using an LC-MS/MS urinary multibiomarker approach. Food consumption of the participants was documentedExpand

Hydrolyzed fumonisins HFB1 and HFB2 are acylated in vitro and in vivo by ceramide synthase to form cytotoxic N-acyl-metabolites.
Fumonisins B1 and B2 (FB1 and FB2) are the most abundant members of the fumonisins--mycotoxins that are produced by Fusarium verticillioides and are natural inhibitors of ceramide synthase. TheirExpand

Characterization of the fusaric acid gene cluster in Fusarium fujikuroi
The “bakanae” fungus Fusarium fujikuroi is a common pathogen of rice and produces a variety of mycotoxins, pigments, and phytohormones. Fusaric acid is one of the oldest known secondary metabolitesExpand
