ABSTRACT This study reports the presence of two fractions from corn seeds inhibitory to aflatoxin formation. Using a sensitive laboratory assay that can measure both inhibition of fungal growth and inhibition of aflatoxin biosynthesis, we examined aqueous extracts from seeds of Tex6, a corn inbred shown to be highly resistant to aflatoxin accumulation in field and laboratory evaluations. In these extracts, we identified two biologically active fractions. One inhibited growth of Aspergillus… CONTINUE READING
