The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between fluorescence emissions of corn kernels inoculated with Aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin contamination levels within the kernels. Aflatoxin contamination in corn has been a long-standing problem plaguing the grain industry with potentially devastating consequences to corn growers. In this(More)
Isolates of Aspergillus flavus can be differentiated based on production of the polygalacturonase P2c. One group of isolates produces P2c, whereas the other group does not. In general, the group that produces P2c causes more damage and spreads to a greater extent in cotton bolls than those isolates that do not produce P2c. To determine whether P2c(More)
Variation in the ability of Aspergillus flavus isolates to spread between cotton boll locules was previously shown to be at least partially related to variation in the production of a specific polygalacturonase (pectinase P2C). To determine if non-pectolytic hydrolase differences between low- and high-virulence isolates exist and, thus, could also(More)
