- ... The fungus P. citrinum produces secondary metabolites, clavinet ergot alkaloids (EA), and quinoline alkaloids (quinocitrinines, QA) in medium with various carbon and nitrogen sources and in the presence of iron, copper, and zinc additives. Mannitol and sucrose are most favorable for EA biosynthesis and mannitol is most favorable for QA. Maximum alkaloid production is observed on urea. Iron and cop ...
