Abstract

SUMMARY: The effects of thioglycerol on growth and aflatoxin production by were studied using conidia-initiated cultures and pregrown mycelia. Thioglycerol inhibited both growth and aflatoxin synthesis, with toxin formation being affected to a greater extent. This inhibitory activity could not be overcome by addition of methionine or zinc sulphate. Accompanying respirometric studies suggested that the primary mode of action of thioglycerol involves an inhibition of oxygen utilization.
