Scavenging of Zearalenone by Bacillus Strains-in vitro

Samuel Edgar Tinyiro, Weirong Yao, Xiulan Sun, Cuthbert Wokadala and Shitao Wang    

Abstract: The capacity of five single bacterial strains to scavenge the mycotoxin Zearalenone (ZEN, 20 μg L-1) from liquid culture media was investigated. Bacillus subtilis 168 and Bacillus natto scavenged 95 and 78% ZEN, respectively, after incubation at 30°C for 48 h. Furthermore, none of the oestrogenic ZEN analogues α-Zearalenol and α-Zearalanol was detected during UPLC-MS/MS analysis. Based on these findings, the two Bacillus strains can potentially be exploited for ZEN decontamination of food and feeds.
