Mycotoxins: Formation, Analysis and Significance
The basic science (mycology, biochemistry, chemistry and agriculture) is provided, but the book emphasises the multidisciplinary nature of research on disease and illness caused by mycotoxins and attempts to relate both to the applied aspects of analysis, control and diagnosis. Expand

  • 1 April 2002
HPLC analysis of patulin-spiked fermentations showed the appearance of two major metabolites, one of which corresponded by both TLC and HPLC to E-ascladiol prepared by the chemical reduction of Patulin using sodium borohydride, identical to that of ascladiol. Expand
Risk assessment for aflatoxins in foodstuffs
The toxicology of aflatoxin B1 involves a complex sequence of metabolic alterations of the molecule by enzymes in the animal tissues, reflected in the very diverse range of responses by different animal species and it is likely that there will also be differences in response amongst different races of humans, and indeed even amongst different individuals of the same race.

Mycotoxin review - 1. Aspergillus and Penicillium
The passage of time has not led to any reduction in the problems associated with the presence of mycotoxins in foods and animal feeds, but the improvement in analytical methods, and the implications of legislation in many countries have served to increase awareness of the phenomenon. Expand
The Isolation and Characterization of Agarolytic Bacteria from a Lowland River
The results suggest that there is no special ecological reason for the presence of agarolytic bacteria in fresh water but that their activity reflects the wide substrate spectrum of the polysaccharides of such organisms. Expand
Prevalence of Fusarium species of the Liseola section on Zimbabwean corn and their ability to produce the mycotoxins zearalenone, moniliformin and fumonisin B1
There was a greater fungal diversity in samples from North (Mashonaland West) than samples from the South (Midlands area) with species of Nigrospora, Chaetomium, Acremonium and Diplodia occurring in significant numbers. Expand
