Carbon catabolite repression of penicillin biosynthesis by Penicillium chrysogenum.


The addition of glucose to batch cultures of Penicillium chrysogenum AS-P-78 reduced the biosynthesis of penicillin. This regulatory effect was also observed in penicillin biosynthesis by nitrogen-limited resting cells when cultures were previously grown in high concentrations of glucose. The effect of glucose was concentration-dependent in the range of 28… (More)
