    ..Thus, our findings suggest that DmtA, apart from being a C-5 cytosine methyltransferase in A. flavus, contributes to asexual development, aflatoxin biosynthesis, sclerotial production and virulence. ..

    ..Our results indicate that the dmtA gene is important in regulation of aflatoxin biosynthesis and for A. flavus to adapt to stressful environments and for survival, although it may hold no apparent function in DNA methylation. ..
