Effect of climate change on Aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin B1 production

  title={Effect of climate change on Aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin B1 production},
  author={Angel Medina and Alicia Rodr{\'i}guez and Naresh Magan},
  booktitle={Front. Microbiol.},
This review considers the available information on the potential impact of key environmental factors and their interactions on the molecular ecology, growth and aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus in vitro and in maize grain. The recent studies which have been carried out to examine the impact of water activity × temperature on aflatoxin biosynthesis and phenotypic aflatoxin production are examined. These have shown that there is a direct relationship between the relative expression of… CONTINUE READING
