Alternariol synthesis solved!

May 22, 2015

Heng (with some help from colleagues) has identified that the gene SnPKS19 synthesizes the secondary metabolite alternariol. This study provides the basis for studying the genetic regulation of AOH production and for development of molecular diagnostic method for detecting AOH-producing fungi in the future. Publication will be available shortly in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
