Some cultural conditions that control biosynthesis of lipid and aflatoxin by Aspergillus parasiticus.


Synthesis of total lipid and aflatoxin by Aspergillus parasiticus as affected by various concentrations of glucose and nitrogen in a defined medium and by different incubation temperatures was studied. Maximal yields of lipid and aflatoxin were obtained with 30% glucose, whereas mold growth, expressed as dry weight, was maximal when the medium contained 10… (More)
