    1. Bacillus thuringiensis insecticidal three-domain Cry toxins: mode of action, insect resistance and consequences for crop protection (pages 3–22)

      Liliana Pardo-López, Mario Soberón and Alejandra Bravo

      Article first published online: 11 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1574-6976.2012.00341.x

      The review examined the similarities and differences of the molecular mechanisms and environmental factors that regulate aflatoxin, fumonisin and trichothecene biosynthesis.

    2. Cyanobacterial toxins: biosynthetic routes and evolutionary roots (pages 23–43)

      Elke Dittmann, David P. Fewer and Brett A. Neilan

      Article first published online: 10 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1574-6976.2012.12000.x

      We report the biosynthetic pathways of cyanobacterial toxins and describe the evolutionary scenarios that have led to the emergence, diversification and loss of such gene clusters.

    3. Host-selective toxins produced by the plant pathogenic fungus Alternaria alternata (pages 44–66)

      Takashi Tsuge, Yoshiaki Harimoto, Kazuya Akimitsu, Kouhei Ohtani, Motoichiro Kodama, Yasunori Akagi, Mayumi Egusa, Mikihiro Yamamoto and Hiroshi Otani

      Article first published online: 24 AUG 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1574-6976.2012.00350.x

      We report the biosynthetic pathways of cyanobacterial toxins and describe the evolutionary scenarios that have led to the emergence, diversification and loss of such gene clusters.

    4. Phytotoxic secondary metabolites and peptides produced by plant pathogenic Dothideomycete fungi (pages 67–93)

      Ioannis Stergiopoulos, Jérôme Collemare, Rahim Mehrabi and Pierre J.G.M. De Wit

      Article first published online: 29 AUG 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1574-6976.2012.00349.x

      This review paper describes host-specific toxins (HSTs) and non-HSTs produced by fungal species belonging to the class of Dothideomycetes.

    5. Aflatoxins, fumonisins, and trichothecenes: a convergence of knowledge (pages 94–109)

      Charles P. Woloshuk and Won-Bo Shim

      Article first published online: 20 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12009

      The review examined the similarities and differences of the molecular mechanisms and environmental factors that regulate aflatoxin, fumonisin and trichothecene biosynthesis.
