Abstract:
The effects of γ-decalactone and δ- decalactone on fungal growth and aflatoxin biosynthesis in Aspergillus flavus were studied. The two compounds delayed spore germination and reduced the fungal growth rate at concentration levels between 300 and 500 ppm. γ-Decalactone completely inhibited germination and growth at 500 ppm. Aflatoxin B1 biosynthesis was inhibited by 57-100%, depending on the concentrations of δ- decalactone and γ-decalactone in the media.
