    ..The finding of GPCRs that regulate production of survival structures (sclerotia), inoculum (spores) and aflatoxin holds promise for future development of anti-fungal therapeutics. ..
  3. Cotty P, Jaime Garcia R. Influences of climate on aflatoxin producing fungi and aflatoxin contamination. Int J Food Microbiol. 2007;119:109-15 pubmed
    ..Understanding the impact of climate may allow development of improved management procedures, better allocation of monitoring efforts, and adjustment of agronomic practices in anticipation of global climate change. ..
  4. Hua S, Baker J, Flores Espiritu M. Interactions of saprophytic yeasts with a nor mutant of Aspergillus flavus. Appl Environ Microbiol. 1999;65:2738-40 pubmed
    ..These yeasts also reduced aflatoxin accumulation by a toxigenic strain of A. flavus. These yeasts may be useful for reducing aflatoxin contamination of food commodities. ..
  5. Imhof A, Balajee S, Marr K. New methods to assess susceptibilities of Aspergillus isolates to caspofungin. J Clin Microbiol. 2003;41:5683-8 pubmed
    ..Agar dilution is simple and reproducible, and results were consistent with the results of more technically demanding techniques. This method may be appropriate for use in the clinical laboratory. ..
  6. Wicklow D, Bobell J, Palmquist D. Effect of intraspecific competition by Aspergillus flavus on aflatoxin formation in suspended disc culture. Mycol Res. 2003;107:617-23 pubmed
    ..This suggests that the substantial inhibition of aflatoxin yield for inoculum mixtures results from the failure of spore germlings to establish a cooperative mycelial network. ..
  7. Geiser D, Dorner J, Horn B, Taylor J. The phylogenetics of mycotoxin and sclerotium production in Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus oryzae. Fungal Genet Biol. 2000;31:169-79 pubmed
    ..Some non-aflatoxin-producing isolates of group I had an omt12 allele that was identical to that found in isolates of A. oryzae. ..
  8. Norton R. Inhibition of aflatoxin B(1) biosynthesis in Aspergillus flavus by anthocyanidins and related flavonoids. J Agric Food Chem. 1999;47:1230-5 pubmed
    ..Binary combinations of delphinidin and three other aflatoxin inhibitors acted independently of each other. Results with an aflatoxin pathway mutant indicated that anthocyanidin inhibition occurred before norsolorinic acid synthesis. ..
  9. Hahn T, Cummings K, Michalek A, Lipman B, Segal B, McCarthy P. Efficacy of high-efficiency particulate air filtration in preventing aspergillosis in immunocompromised patients with hematologic malignancies. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol. 2002;23:525-31 pubmed
