Abstract:
The secondary metabolite profiles of the fungi of the subgenus Penicillium of the genus Penicillium isolated from permafrost were studied. Most of the tested strains synthesized biologically active alkaloids and polyketides. A novel producer of fumiquinazolines F and G was found. Species names of the strains were defined more exactly on the basis of their secondary metabolite profiles and micro- and macromorphological characteristics.
