New synthetic compounds as inhibitors of mycotoxin synthesis

  • Trends in Mycology: One day meeting…. Braga, Portugal, 23rd September, 2005

Publisher: Universidade do Minho. Micoteca


Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin produced by some Aspergillus and Penicillium species which is often detected in beer, cereals, coffee, feeds, figs, sultanas and wine. Some fungicides have been found to be effective in preventing fungal growth, but, in other cases, an increase in the synthesis of mycotoxins was reported. Also, the pressure to use less harmful compounds to the environment stimulates the exploration of new and more benign compounds. Synthetic compounds were tested on the growth and OTA production of one strain of A. alliaceus, A. ochraceus, A. carbonarius and A. niger. T ...
