Project presentations

Communication and dissemination play a central role in the delivery of the MycoKey smart solutions for food safety and acts as a vehicle for introducing innovation and supporting Europe’s long-term policies for sustainable growth and competitiveness in food sector. MycoKey dissemination actions will demonstrate also to non -specialised audiences the project’s added value in food safety and job creation as well as seek views from the public on the future of the European Union intrinsically support Horizon 2020’s core added values.
MycoKey Consortium members are very active in promoting projects’activities and sharing results with international scientific community, to spread knowledge around the world and create opportunities for cooperation.

Aflatoxin B1 and M1 Degradation by Lac2 from Pleurotus pulmonarius and Redox Mediators

 This paper reports the possibility that a laccase enzyme produced by a mushroom, Pleurotus pulmonarius, could degrade the carcinogenic mycotoxin aflatoxin B1. This activity can be very useful, since opens the perspective of applying such enzyme in the food and feed supply chains for reducing eventual AFB1 contamination.
