Development of a PCR assay to detect the potential production of nivalenol in Fusarium poae

Fusarium species can produce mycotoxins, which can contaminate cereal-based food producing adverse effects for human and animal health. In recent years, the importance of Fusarium poae has increased within the Fusarium head blight complex. Fusarium poae is known to produce trichothecenes, especially nivalenol, a potent mycotoxin able to cause a variety of toxic . . . → Read More: Development of a PCR assay to detect the potential production of nivalenol in Fusarium poae

Quantification of Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium culmorum by real-time PCR system and zearalenone assessment in maize

See on Scoop.it – PCR PRIMERS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF PHYTOPATHOGENIC FUNGI

Zearalenone (ZEA) is a mycotoxin produced by some species of Fusarium, especially by Fusarium graminearum and F. culmorum. ZEA induces hyperoestrogenic responses in mammals and can result in reproductive disorders in farm animals. In the present study, a real-time PCR (qPCR) assay . . . → Read More: Quantification of Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium culmorum by real-time PCR system and zearalenone assessment in maize
