- ... Aflatoxins are toxic and carcinogenic secondary metabolites produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus . Strains of A. flavus that are non-aflatoxigenic (i.e., incapable of secreting aflatoxins) have proven effective in controlling contamination by these aflatoxin producing species in the field. In the present study, a non-aflatoxigenic A. flavus strain, GD-3, was isolated from a p ...
