Phytotoxins and mycotoxins produced by fungal plant pathogens are generally low molecular weight secondary metabolites that exert toxic effects on host plants and animals, respectively. Among the phytotoxins, host-specific toxins (HSTs) are critical determinants of pathogenicity or virulence in several plantâpathogen interactions [1,2]. The AAL-toxin and fumonisin are structurally related and were originally isolated from the tomato pathotype of Alternaria alternata (synonym A. alternata f. sp. lycopersici, synonym A. arborescens) and from Gibberella moniliformis, respectively.
