A strain of F. kyushuense is able to produce aflatoxin B1 and G1 under certain growth conditions. This was ultimately demonstrated by LC-MS analysis. By using a microarray covering oligonucleotides specific for the aflatoxin pathway genes of A. flavus, the expression of homologues of nearly the complete aflatoxin biosynthesis gene cluster was detected in F. kyushuense under producing conditions, e.g., after growth in liquid YES medium. In contrast, after growth of F. kyushuense on solid YES… CONTINUE READING
