Abstract

SUMMARY: Aflatoxin degradative activity was demonstrated in 6- to 12-d-old intact mycelium and cell-free extracts of . The addition of cycloheximide, SKF 525-A or metyrapone to cultures of prevented subsequent degradation of the aflatoxins, while in cell-free extracts degradation was inhibited by SKF 525-A, metyrapone and cytochrome but not by KCN. In cell-free extracts, aflatoxin degradation was enhanced by NADPH and NaIO. The results suggest the involvement of cytochrome P-450 monooxygenases in the aflatoxin degradative activity of .
