Determination of the antibacterial activity of various mycotoxins using Bacillus thuringiensis (Berliner)

Mycopathologia
P Boutibonnes

Abstract

Antibacterial activity of pure preparations of mycotoxins, was studied against strains of Bacillus thuringiensis (Berliner). Most of fungal metabolites used provokes: 1) Growth bacterial inhibition similar to lethal effect of antibiotics 2) Enlargment of cell volume; this cell abnormality induction resembles those obtained with mitomycin C. The bioassay of fungal toxins with B. thuringiensis can be recommended as a sensitive technique to supplement chemical characterization. By using specific cell lines to such a mycotoxin and specific inactivators as coumarin for aflatoxin, or sulfhydryl compounds for penicillic acid and patulin.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Antifungals

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.
