原始语种摘要: Background: Aspergillus flavus is known for its capability of production of aflatoxins in food grains in the tropics. It was also recently demonstrated as capable of production of α-amylase in a defined medium with potassium nitrate and some other nitrogen compounds as nitrogen source for fungal growth and development (Adejuwon et al. , 2015, Advances in Bioscience and Bioengineering ). Materials and methods: In this current investigation a same defined growth medium with potassium nitrate as nitrogen source was inoculated with spore suspensions of approximately 7x105 spores per ml of Aspergillus flavus. The carbon source for growth was varied and was independently bread, starch, maltose, sucrose, lactose, glucose and galactose. Incubation was at 30oC. Extracellular...
