Virulence Factors: Aflatoxin B1, B2, G1 and G2, which are important mycotoxins. Also produces some other mycotoxins, such as cyclopiazonic acid, gliotoxin, kojic acid and sterigmatocystin. However, All strains of A. flavus does not produce all mycotoxins and there are strains that do not produce mycotoxins at all.
