Chemical determination of leucogenenol and its production by Penicillium gilmanii.


A method for the quantitative determination of leucogenenol, a leucocytosis-inducing compound produced by Penicillium gilmanii, has been developed. The formation of leucogenenol in P. gilmanii and its diffusion into the culture fluid has been followed over a period of 12 weeks. The highest concentration of leucogenenol was found in the mycelium of rapidly… (More)
