Thirty deoxynivalenol-producing F. culmorum strains, isolated from wheat grains, were incubated in vitro and analyzed for trichothecene production.Seventeen strains produced more than 1 ppm of deoxynivalenol…..etc.

Key words: DNA barcode, COX 1 gene, ITS rDNA, fungal identification, biodiversity.


Trichothecenes, including deoxynivalenol, acetyldeoxynivalenol, nivalenol, and fusarenone X, are sesquiterpene toxins produced by Fusarium species, including Fusarium culmorum, which are common fungal contaminants of cereals. Trichothecenes can be found naturally worldwide on cereals (1, 2, 3), and the consumption of these toxins is a potential problem for humans and farm animals (4).

Materials and methods

strains isolated from cereals from different areas in France were used in this study, as presented in Table 1. Fusarium strains may also be obtained from the first author.

Toxin production.

Toxin production by the Fusarium strains was conducted on autoclaved wheat grains. Wheat grains (Soissons) were moistened with sterile distilled water for 4 days at 4°C until thermodynamic water activity was maximal…..etc.

Trichothecene analysis.

Wheat grains (25 g) were analyzed by gas chromatography- electron capture detection and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry etc.


  1. culmorum identification. The Fusarium strains studied were isolated from commercial wheat kernels. Morphological identification of F. culmorum strains was confirmed by PCR….etc.
