Detection of toxigenic Fusarium isolates by thin layer chromatography

Authors


Abstract

A simple screening method was used to investigate mycotoxin production among 114 Fusarium isolates. Zearalenone, T-2 toxin, HT-2 toxin, diacetoxyscirpenol, neosolaniol, deoxynivalenol, nivalenol, fusarenon-X, butenolide, moniliformin and equisetin were detected. The importance of the use of a range of different substrates for mycotoxin production was proved.
