Aflatoxins (AFs), mainly produced by Aspergillus flavus and A parasiticus, are the major contaminants of crops in areas with hot climates. These compounds are carcinogenic and act as a cancer initiator. 160 single spore isolates of A flavus/parasiticus were obtained from Egypt and the Philippines. 26.5% of the isolates produced AFs. Producers of four chemotypes of aflatoxin were found. Surprisingly, all positive isolates of A parasiticus produced higher amounts (2400-40400 ng ml-1) of total AFs (AFB1, AFB2, AFG1 and AFG2) than the positive isolates of A flavus (<1200 ng ml-1). All isolates, which were able to produce AFs, gave a positive signal with the ver-1/ver-2 and ordAF/ordAR primers, which amplify ver-1 and ordA genes in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway. Based on PCR products of ver-1 gene, new genotypes of aflatoxigenic fungi were found, which revealed the variability of AFs production between different isolates depending on the sources of isolation.
