Toxic secondary metabolites produced by fungi representing Fusarium genus are common contaminants in cereals worldwide. To estimate the dietary intake of these trichothecene mycotoxins, information on their fate during cereal processing is needed. Up-to-date techniques such as high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with tandem mass(More)
A highly embryogenic cell suspension of alfalfa derived from a genotype sensitive to Fusarium oxysporum was successfully used for selection in vitro for resistance to culture filtrates of F. oxysporum, F. solani and F. avenaceum. Fifty two stable resistant cell lines were obtained and 500 plants regenerated from them. Among the 167 regenerants tested under(More)
The uptake of As, Cd, Pb, and Zn and potential phytoremediation efficiency of five high biomass producing crops, white sweetclover (Melilotus alba L.), red clover (Trifolium pratense L.), curled mallow (Malva verticillata L.), safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) and hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) commonly used as grazing and/or energy crops was evaluated in both(More)
The issue of moulds and, thus, contamination with mycotoxins is very topical, particularly in connexion with forages from grass stands used at the end of the growing season. Deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenone (ZEA), fumonisins (FUM) and aflatoxins (AFL) are among the most common mycotoxins. The aim of the paper was to determine concentrations of mycotoxins(More)
Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungal species that have harmful effects on mammals. The aim of this study was to assess the content of mycotoxins in fresh-cut material of selected forage grass species both during and at the end of the growing season. We further assessed mycotoxin content in subsequently produced first-cutting silages with(More)
The aim of this study was a monitoring of the occurrence ofAlternaria andFusarium mycotoxins in winter wheat from domestic crop in the year 2003. Altenuene was determined in 56 (100%) samples of winter wheat, range 14.5–41 μg/kg, mean 25 μg/kg. Alternariol was determined in 16 (28.6%) samples of winter wheat, range 6.3–22.1 μg/kg, mean 5.7 μ/kg. DON was(More)
Nedělník J., Lindušková H., Kmoch M. (2012): Influence of growing Bt maize on Fusarium infection and mycotoxins content – a review. Plant Protect. Sci., 48 (Special Issue): S18–S24. The literature linking Bt maize versus non-Bt maize and the changes in the fungal microflora spectrum and in the mycotoxins content have been summarised. The European corn borer(More)
Callus cultures ofMedicago sativa were treated with a preparation of elicitor from the mycelium ofFusarium oxysporum. The ability of the elicitors to induce the formation of antimicrobial substances was tested biologically. The preparation of the cell walls ofF. oxysporum induced the occurrence of substances with a strong antimicrobial effect. Thermal(More)
