MycoKey aims to unlock new knowledge and to valorize existing knowledge and data by rapid dissemination to research partners and stakeholders in the chain.
In the MycoKey programme all scientific peer reviewed publications are available through open access. Research data will be deposited in public data repositories for (re)-analysis exploitation and dissemination free of charge.
In this page you can find publications describing the scientific results arising from project’s activities.
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.
