Title: The isolation and characterization of phytoalexin and constitutive agents from plants for mycotoxin control
Authors: Mohanlall, Viresh
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: 
Plant medicine is an important area of commercial activity in South Africa. This is a rapidly expanding market, thus we are evaluating natural and stressinduced compounds (phytoalexins) from plants as agents that may be able to control mycotoxins. Natural compounds from Bridelia micrantha, Warburgia salutaris, Lippia javanica and Scenecio serratuloides and stress-induced compounds (phytoalexins) from Citrus sinensis cv Valencia were screened for antitunqal and antimycotoxic activity by bioautography against a test organism (Cladosporium cladosporoides) and mycotoxin producing fungi (Fusarium moniliforme and Aspergillus flavus).
