- ... Fungi of the genus Penicillium isolated from little studied habitats are able to synthesize both previously known and new physiologically active compounds with diverse structures. They include secondary metabolites of alkaloid nature, i.e., ergot alkaloids, diketopiperazines, quinolines, quinazolines, benzodiazepines, and polyketides. We discuss the use of profiles of secondary metabolites for tax ...

- ... 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 ...
