Abstract Biosynthesis this study, we used functional genomic strategies, proteomics and quantitative real-time qRT -PCR, to advance our understanding of genes associated with fumonisin production in the fungus Fumonisin verticillioides. Abstract Fusarium verticillioides, a pathogen of maize, produces a class of mycotoxins called fumonisins in infected kernels. We also identified gene sequences corresponding to the selected proteins and investigated their transcriptional profiles via quantitative real-time qRT -PCR in order to identify genes that show concomitant expression patterns during fumonisin biosynthesis.

Apr;18(4) Identification of genes associated with fumonisin biosynthesis in Fusarium verticillioides via proteomics and. Trichothecenes and fumonisins are mycotoxins produced by Fusarium, a filamentous fungus that can cause disease in barley, maize, rice, wheat, and some. A mutant of the fungus, FT, carrying a disrupted gene named FCC1 (for Fusarium cyclin C1) resulting in altered fumonisin B1 biosynthesis was generated.
