Mycotoxin production from Penicillium expansum was effected by the 'biocontrol enhancer' 2-deoxy-D-glucose (DOG). Citrinin and gentisyl alcohol were produced in higher amounts, whereas patulin was inhibited, which represents a differential effect on the polyketide metabolic pathway. These effects have implications for the use of DOG in biocontrol.
