The enzymatic degradation of aflatoxin B(1) (AFB(1)) by white rot fungi through laccase production was investigated in different liquid media. A significant (P<0.0001) correlation was observed between laccase activity and AFB(1) degradation exhibited by representatives of Peniophora and Pleurotus ostreatus cultivated in minimal salts (MSM) (r=0.93) and mineral salts - malt extract (MSB-MEB) (r=0.77) liquid media. Peniophora sp. SCC0152 cultured in MSB-MEB liquid medium supplemented with… CONTINUE READING
