- ... Medium composition, cultivation temperature, and pO₂ had a regulatory effect on production of ergot alkaloids (EA) and quinocitrinines (QC) by the fungal strain Penicillium citrinum VKM F-4043 D. Maximal accumulation of EA and QC occurred at 24 and 28°C, respectively. Maximal EA synthesis occurred at 40% pO₂, while at 10–20% the conditions were optimal for QC synthesis. Production of these metabol ...
