In 1951 Brian (29) summarized the reports of antibiotic production by fungi. Since then many more antibiotics have been discovered and, although most are from Actinomycetes, there are a good many reports of fungal antibiotics. For easy reference the material is presented in tabular form with the producing organisms arranged systematically. The chemical structures of the antibiotics are not given because, if known, they will usually be found in the Pfizer Handbook (99). One of the reasons for…

Genomes and secretomes of Ascomycota fungi reveal diverse functions in plant biomass decomposition and pathogenesis

Results demonstrate that these fungi likely interact with primary producers (biocrust or plants) by secreting a wide range of proteins that facilitate symbiotic associations, and provide important insights about the lifestyles and the roles that Ascomycota fungi likely play in arid grassland, ecosystems.

ANTIBIOTICS FROM ASPERGILLUS AMSTELODAMI.

A strain of Aspergillus amstelodami, which antagonized the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, was shown to produce at least two antibiotic substances, which appear to be distinct from previously described derivatives of the true fungi and were named Amodin A and AmodIn B.

Frequentin: an Antibiotic produced by some Strains of Penicillium frequentans Westling

An unusual strain of P. frequentans which develops extensive white sterile mycelia on Czapek agar and causes some ropiness on malt agar produces an anti-fungal and weakly antibacterial substance which the authors propose to call ‘frequentin’.

AN ANTIBIOTIC PRODUCED BY THE MYCORRHIZAL FUNGUS CENOCOCCUM GRANIFORME.

An antibiotic active against representatives of the bacteria, yeasts, and actinomycetes has been extracted from the mycelium, produced in vitro, of several strains of the mycorrhizal fungus,

Synnematin, an Antibiotic Produced by Tilachlidium

Crude preparations inhibit in vitro certain species of Brucella, Corynebacterium, Micrococcus, Streptococcus, all species of Salmonella tested and some species of Shigella and synnematin is inactive against the tested strains.

Antibiotic Substances from Basidiomycetes: X. Fomes Juniperinus Schrenk.

The Ochoco strain was the best for the production of antibacterial culture liquids. 6 The analysis of sample 1 was made by J. F. Alicino and of sample 2 by the Huffman Analytical Laboratories. The

MODE OF ACTION OF MYCOBACILLIN, A NEW ANTIFUNGAL ANTIBIOTIC

It appears that agglutination may be a secondary late effect of the action of the drug, not causally related to but simply associated with the primary cause responsible for antifungal action.
