PROJECT TOPIC: THE RESULTS OF THE ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY TEST OF EXTRACTS OF PINUS CARIBAEA AND PENTACLETHRA MACROPHYLLA AGAINST THE AFLATOXIN PRODUCTION BY ASPERGILLUS FLAVUS

Project Body:


ABSTRACT

The leaf extracts of Pinus caribaea and Pentaclethra macrophylla were tested for antifungal and antimycotoxigenic activity against the growth of aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus using agar dilution method. The results showed that two extracts reduced the growth of aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus. Aspergillus flavus was significantly inhibited by the treatment when compared to the control. Further studies should be carried out to know the phytochemicals that are responsible for these antifungal activities.
