In contrast to previous reports, highly purified samples of Cercospora beticola toxin (CBT), very effective in inhibiting phosphohydrolase activity and H+-transport in microsomal vesicles of maize roots, are unable to complete with tritium-labeled dihydrofusicoccin in binding to microsomal preparations of maize or spinach tissues.
