Enzymatic degradation of PCL by Aspergillus flavus
and Penicillium funiculosum showed that faster degradation was observed in the amorphous region .
These include the Aspergillus flavus
, which was frequently isolated from maize samples analysed in this study.
Seifert takes the example of Aspergillus flavus
, the asexual name for the powdery fuzz that is notorious for releasing carcinogenic aflatoxins into stored peanuts, corn and other commodities.
Identification of atoxigenic Aspergillus flavus
isolates to reduce aflatoxin contamination of maize in Kenya.
A microbiological examination yielded a filamentous fungus from three different specimens that was identified as Aspergillus flavus
Culture showed growth of Aspergillus flavus
From the result only three fungi were isolated as follows:- Aspergillus clavatus, Aspergillus flavus
, and Fusarium poae.
Food borne pathogens such as Pseudomonas lundensis, Bacillus cereus, Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus
are widely distributed in nature causing considerable mortality and morbidity in the population.
Culture of the disk material in this patient was positive for Aspergillus flavus
Variation of aflatoxin content in cultures of Aspergillus flavus
with duration of incubation and its significance in studies on aflatoxin production 1972.
Tested fungi include eight clinical isolates of Candida albicans, ATCC type strains (10231), Aspergillus niger ATCC 16404, Aspergillus parasiticus ATCC 15517, six isolates of Aspergillus flavus
Second, use of a bacterial uricase from Aspergillus flavus
avoided major loss of activity at the pH of maximum horseradish peroxidase activity.
2001) reported the isolation of Aspergillus flavus
and Aspergillus niger from stored cassava products.
Although Aspergillus flavus
and Aspergillus niger were resistant to the extracts, essential oils of E sideroxylon and E torquata generally exhibited moderate to high antifungal activities against Candida albicans, A flavus and A niger.
Other fungi isolated were Aspergillus flavus
, Penicillium spp and Pacelomyces spp, but average concentrations were much lower at 0.
