The ability to degrade ochratoxin A was studied in different bacteria with a well-known capacity to transform aromatic compounds. Strains belonging to Rhodococcus, Pseudomonas and Brevibacterium genera were grown in liquid synthetic culture medium containing ochratoxin A. Brevibacterium spp. strains showed 100% degradation of ochratoxin A. Ochratoxin  was detected and identified by high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) as degradation product in the cell-free supernatants. Degradation of ochratoxin A is of public concern for food and environmental safety, because it could contribute to the development of new biological ochratoxin A detoxification systems in foodstuff. In this study, the degradation of ochratoxin A by bacteria belonging to the food chain was demonstrated for the first time.
