Biotechnological substances from fungi
Abstract Fungi are a rich source of secondary metabolites that offer a plethora of valuable substances for pharmacology, medicine, food, and fodder production. Biotechnological exploitation of fungi
Purification and Characterization of Antibacterial Activity against Phytopathogenic Bacteria in Culture Fluids from Ganoderma lucidum
This is the first report of small polysaccharides produced by G. lucidum with activity against bacterial plant pathogens and composition of the antibacterial compounds was determined by GC-MS.
Screening and optimization of submerged fermentation of aspergillus species for kojic acid production
Kojic acid is organic acid obtained from numerous species of Aspergillus through fermentation.This is among most demanding substances in cosmetic industries as an alternate to carcinogenic
Bio efficacy of fungicides, biocontrol agents and botanicals against brown spot (Cercospora longipes Butler) of sugarcane
In vitro evaluation fungicides, plant extract and bioagents revealed that leaf extracts of Azadiracta indica and Trichoderma virens were most effective against brown spot, and pathogenicity of brown spot disease was proved by mycelial bit inoculation method.
Hydrophobins—Exclusive fungal proteins
Abstract Hydrophobins are exclusive fungal proteins, mainly produced by members of filamentous fungi. They are small amphipathic protein molecules with eight conserved cysteine amino acids linked by
Tautomerism in Fuscin - A DFT Treatment
Fuscin, a natural product having various functionalities, may exhibit 1,3- and 1,5-proton tautomerism, as well as valence tautomerism via its 1,5-proton tautomer. All those possible forms are
The mechanisms and cell signaling pathways of programmed cell death in the bacterial world.
Interestingly, many of the potential reasons as to why bacteria undergo programmed cell death may parallel those observed in eukaryotic cells, and may be altruistic in nature.
Multi-dimensional mycelia interactions
Production of secondary metabolites comprising the fungal chemical weaponry, namely extracellular lignocellulolytic enzymes and volatile organic compounds, was significantly different between 2 and 3 dimensional systems, between systems of varied species diversity, and between different spatial distributions of fungi, reflecting the observed changes to community dynamics.


On the structure of expansine, a bactericidal and fungicidal substance in penicillium expansum westl.
From this investigation it is concluded that expansine C7H6O4, a substance with bactericidal and fungicidal properties isolated by Oosterhuis and Luyken 1 ) from the culture liquid of Penicillium
It has now been definitely established that a considerable proportion of all actinomycetes that can be isolated from soils or other natural substrates have the capacity of inhibiting the growth of,
A new antibacterial substance fromInoloma traganum (inolomin)
Im PilzInoloma traganum wurde ein neuer antibakterieller Stoff gefunden, der könnte theoretisch beim Studium der systematischen Einordnung von Mikrokokken and Pseudodiphtheriebazillen bedeutsam sein.
Antibacterial activity ofPenicillium divergens bainier
Aus den Kulturfiltraten des SchimmelpilzesP. divergens Bainier wurden drei antibiotische Stoffe — Patulin, Gentisinalkohol und Gentisinsäure — isoliert.
Enniatin, ein neues, gegen Mykobakterien wirksames Antibiotikum
From the mycelium of Fusarium orthoceras var.enniatinum, a new antibiotic substance called Enniatin is isolated in crystalline form and is especially active in vitro against several mycobacteria.
Three new antibiotics from a species ofGliocladium
Aus den Kulturfiltraten einerGliocladium-Art lassen sich im wesentlichen drei Substanzen isolieren, und zwar Rubrogliocladin, Aurantioglioc Ladin and Gliorosein, eine nur geringe antibiotische Wirksamkeit.
Über Lyco-marasmin, den Welkstoff ausFusarium lycopersici Sacc
The effect of the wilt producing substance, lycomarasmine, isolated from cultures ofFus. lycopersici Sacc., is shown in three pictures. On hydrolysis lycomarasmine yields glycine, aspartic and
Über die Chemie des Enniatins
Judging by the physical and chemical properties and “bacterial spectra”, the antibiotic substance, Enniatin, previously isolated from a strain ofFusarium by the authors, appears to be identical with
Aspergillic acid; an antibiotic substance produced by Aspergillus flavus.

The discovery by White in 1940 that a strain of Aspergillus Jlavus produced a highly bactericidal filtrate from which White and Hill in 1943 were able to isolate the active material in crystalline form added another member to the increasing group of chemically and biologically interesting antibiotic compounds.
