The influence of fungitoxicants on growth and aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus


, : The influence of fungitoxicants on growth and aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus. Letters in Applied Microbiology 11(4): 197-201

The influence of 6 fungitoxicants on growth and aflatoxin production by A. flavus was tested in liquid SMKY medium at 2 concn (0.1 and 0.5%). Thiram completely inhibited the aflatoxin production at 0.5% concn. Other fungitoxicants showing >60% inhibition were Bavistin (carbendazim) and Daconil Vitavax (0.1%) and Agrosan GN (0.1 and 0.5%) stimulated the growth of fungus and aflatoxin elaboration after 7 d of incubation. Dithane M-45 moderately inhibited aflatoxin synthesis.

Transcriptional activation of the mouse c-fos gene by the adenovirus 243-amino-acid E1A protein requires a binding site for transcription factor YY1 located at -54 of the c-fos promoter. YY1 normally represses transcription of c-fos, and this repr...
