The influence of varying combinations of water activity (aw) and temperature on growth, aflatoxin biosynthesis and aflR/aflS expression of Aspergillus parasiticus was analysed in the ranges 17–42°C and 0.90–0.99 aw. Optimum growth was at 35°C. At each temperature studied, growth increased from 0.90 to 0.99 aw. Temperatures of 17 and 42°C only supported marginal growth. The external conditions had a differential effect on aflatoxin B1 or G1 biosynthesis. The temperature optima of aflatoxin B1… CONTINUE READING
