Thirty-four isolates ofAspergillus flavus obtained from the main Argentinian corn production area were tested for their ability to produce both cyclopiazonic acid (CPA) on corn and on liquid media and aflatoxins on corn. Aflatoxins and CPA were quantified by comparison with standards. The last one was confirmed by mass spectrometry. All but one of the isolates produced CPA on liquid medium in a range between 3120 to 62500 μg/kg, 27/34 isolates produced CPA on corn at levels ranging from 833 to… CONTINUE READING
