Abstract

Resting cells of Aspergillus flavus synthesized aflatoxin from acetate as the sole carbon source after 36 h of incubation. Addition of pyruvate (5.5 mg/ml) as cosubstrate to [1--1-4C]acetate and unlabelled acetate considerably reduced toxin production but increased the radioactivity of the tricarboxylic acid intermediates. This suggests that high tricarboxylic acid activity drastically affected toxin synthesis.
