Fuchs E, Binder E, Heidler D, Krska R. Characterisation of metabolites after the microbial degradation of A- and B-trichothecenes by BBSH 797. Mycotoxin Res. 2000;16 Suppl 166-9.
This work deals with the characterisation of trichothecene metabolites after the microbial degradation by the bacterial strain BBSH 797. Besides deoxynivalenol (DON), also the degradation of other trichothecenes was investigated. In the case of nivalenol, its metabolite deepoxy nivalenol could be identified. Useful methods for the structural characterisation are GC-MS or LC-PB-MS which were used in this particular case.
