Biotechnological production of statins: metabolic aspects and genetic approaches.
A non-exhaustive review of fungal species used to produce statin and the major factors affecting the efficacy of this process are highlighted.
Compounds isolated from Bixa orellana: evidence-based advances to treat infectious diseases
This review shows the potential of bioactive compounds derived from B. orellana to treat infectious diseases due to their antimicrobial and antioxidant properties and a promising source of compounds that could be applied in antimicrobial therapy.


Response surface optimization of mixed substrate solid state fermentation for the production of lovastatin by Monascus purpureus
This is the first report on the production of lovastatin using a mixed substrate solid state fermentation using Monascus purpureus and to optimize the combination of the solid substrates by response surface methodology.
Effect of rice-glycerol complex medium on the production of lovastatin byMonascus ruber
In comparison with glycerol and glucose, the rice powder becomes a more suitable carbon source and represents a great potential for the production of Lvs.
Screening of medicinal higher Basidiomycetes mushrooms from Turkey for lovastatin production.
The lovastatin amount produced by commercial strains, Aspergillus terreus NRRL 255 and Penicillium citrinum NRRL 1841, was nearly comparable to the amountproduced by Pleurotus ostreatus OBCC 1031 and Omphalotus olearius O BCC 2002.
Screening of Edible Mushrooms for the Production of Lovastatin and its HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitory Activity
The production of lovastatin and its HMG-CoA reductase activity produced by fruit bodies and mycelial liquid cultures of domestic edible mushrooms (8 fungal strains) was determined and deter-mining TLC analysis showed same Rf value, which was identical to that of the standard Lovastatin.
Solid state fermentation: An effective method for Lovastatin production by fungi over submerged fermentation
Insight is provided into the different lovastatin production strategies employed by SSF, its advantages over SmF, optimisation parameters, Lovastatin genetics etc.
Optimization of Fermentation Parameters for Higher Lovastatin Production in Red Mold Rice through Co-culture of Monascus purpureus and Monascus ruber
Monascus, fermented rice (red mold rice), has been found to reduce the serum total cholesterol and triglyceride due to presence of lovastatin. Lovastatin acts as an inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl
Lovastatin biosynthetic genes of Aspergillus terreus are expressed differentially in solid-state and in liquid submerged fermentation
The results show that the higher lovastatin production in SSF is related to a more intense transcription of these biosynthetic genes, and that osmotic stress alone is not responsible for the higher gene expression inSSF.
Screening fungi for the production of an inhibitor of HMG CoA reductase: Production of mevinolin by the fungi of the genus Pleurotus
F fungi of the basidiomycetous genus Pleurotus, especially species P. ostreatus, P. saca and P. sapidus, are an as yet unknown but promising source of the hypocholesterolaemic agent.
Biomolecule Profiles in Inedible Wild Mushrooms with Antioxidant Value
Fomitopsis pinicola revealed a very high phenolics concentration and powerful antioxidant properties, mainly reducing power (EC50 value 60 μg/mL similar to the standard Trolox®), which could find applications in the prevention of free radical-related diseases as a source of bioactive compounds.
