    • Critical environmental and genotypic factors for Fusarium verticillioides infection, fungal growth and fumonisin contamination in maize grown in northwestern Spain 

      Cao, Ana; Santiago, Rogelio; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Souto, Carlos; Aguín, Olga; Malvar, Rosa Ana; Brutón, Ana (Elsevier B.V., 2014)
      In northwestern Spain, where weather is rainy and mild throughout the year, Fusarium verticillioides is the most prevalent fungus in kernels and a significant risk of fumonisin contamination has been exposed. In this study, ...
    • Environmental factors related to fungal infection and fumonisin accumulation during the development and drying of white maize kernels 

      Cao, Ana; Santiago, Rogelio; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Reid, Lana M.; Butrón, Ana (Elsevier, 2013)
      In Southern Europe where whole maize kernels are ground and used for making bread and other food products, infection of the kernels by Fusarium verticillioides and subsequent fumonisin contamination pose a serious safety ...
    • High-carotenoid maize: development of plant biotechnology prototypes for human and animal health and nutrition 

      Zhu, Changfu; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Zanga, Daniela; Lloveras Vilamanyà, Jaume; Michelena Bárcena, Antonio; Ferrio Díaz, Juan Pedro; Voltas Velasco, Jordi; Slafer, Gustavo A.; Savin, Roxana; Albajes Garcia, Ramon; Eizaguirre Altuna, Matilde; López Alonso, Carmen; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Díaz Gómez, Joana; Nogareda, Carmina; Moreno Martínez, José Antonio; Angulo Asensio, Eduardo; Estany Illa, Joan; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Tor i Naudí, Marc; Portero Otín, Manuel; Eritja Sánchez, Núria; Arjó Pont, Gemma; Serrano Casasola, José Carlos Enrique; Matias-Guiu, Xavier; Twyman, Richard M.; Sandmann, Gerhard; Capell Capell, Teresa; Christou, Paul (Springer Verlag, 2017-06-01)
      Carolight® is a transgenic maize variety that accumulates extraordinary levels of carotenoids, including those with vitamin A activity. The development of Carolight® maize involved the technical implementation of a novel ...
    • Preliminary survey of the occurrence of mycotoxins in cereals and estimated exposure in a northwestern region of Mexico 

      Molina-Pintor, I. B.; Ruíz-Arias, M. A.; Guerrero-Flores, M. C.; Rojas-García, A. E.; Barrón-Vivanco, Briscia S.; Medina-Díaz, Irma M.; Bernal-Hernández, Y.

      Mycotoxins have several toxicological implications. In the present study, we evaluate the presence of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), ochratoxin A (OTA), and fumonisin (FB1) in paddy rice, polished rice, and maize from the fields and ...
    • The effect of enhanced carotenoid content of transgenic maize grain on fungal colonization and mycotoxin content 

      Díaz Gómez, Joana; Marín Sillué, Sònia; Nogareda, Carmina; Sanchis, Daniel; Ramos Girona, Antonio J. (Springer Verlag, 2016)
      Novel strategies that address vitamin A deficiency have been developed, such as high-carotenoid maize, a biofortified transgenic maize line rich in carotenoids generated by genetic transformation. The South African white ...
