[Role of the mycelium in the elimination of aflatoxin B1 from contaminated substrates].


When the aflatoxin-producing strain of Aspergillus flavus, nr 14409 developed in mixed cultures with non toxigenic strains, in solid or liquid media, it produced less aflatoxin than in pure culture. Investigations in view to elucidate the process promoting the toxin disappearance showed that the mycelium could immobilize a large amount of aflatoxin by… (More)
