Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by filamentous fungi that occur naturally in agricultural commodities worldwide. Aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, patulin, fumonisins, zearalenone, trichothecenes, and ergot alkaloids are presently the most important for food and feed safety. These compounds are produced by several species that belong to the(More)
Aqueous two-phase partitioning of endo-polygalacturonase (endo-PG) produced by Kluyveromyces marxianus strains was studied, on systems containing the thermoseparating polymer Ucon 50-HB-5100 (a random copolymer of 50% ethylene oxide (EO) and 50% propylene oxide (PO)) as one of the phase-forming compounds. Ucon 50-HB-5100 (Ucon)–polyvinyl alcohol (PVA(More)
The phase diagrams of Ucon 50-HB-5100 (Ucon) + ammonium sulfate (NH4)2SO4 + water, Ucon 50-HB5100 + poly(vinyl alcohol) 10000 (PVA 10000) + water, Ucon 50-HB-5100 + hydroxypropyl starch (Reppal PES 100) + water, and poly(ethylene glycol) 8000 (PEG 8000)-PVA 10000 systems were determined at 22 °C. Measurements at 30 and 40 °C were also done for each(More)
