AIMS To determine the modulating action of some metal ions (Zn+2, Fe+2, Cu+2) on gene expression of enzymes related to fungal growth and accumulation of the mycotoxins aflatoxin and zearalenone. METHODS AND RESULTS The effect of the metal ions, as single or mixed treatments, was observed in submerged cultures of toxigenic Aspergillus flavus or Fusarium graminearum, which produce the mycotoxins aflatoxin or zearalenone, respectively. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results showed that… CONTINUE READING
