B. megaterium and S. epidermidis were used to study the inhibitory effect or pure aflatoxin and aflatoxin-contaminated rice. Results showed that the inhibitory effect was more pronounced In B. megatarium growth. The inhibitory effect of pure aflatoxin started at the concentration of 20 μg/ml and persisted to the concentration of 25 μg/ml (P<0.05). The inhibitory effect of aflatoxin-contaminated rice was not detected because of its low concentration.
