Biological degradation of aflatoxin B1 by Rhodococcus erythropolis cultures.
Ochratoxin A, a Toxic Metabolite produced by Aspergillus ochraceus Wilh.
This species has also been frequently recovered in low counts from South African cereal and legume crops and has been reported as constituents of the mycoflora characteristic of ‘katsuobushi’ and other fermented fish preparations.
