Abstract Red yeast rice was used over than thousands of years, containing abundant secondary metabolites with different bioactivities. Nowadays, the investigation of Monascus spp. was changed from anti-cholesterol monacolin analogues to Monascus pigments. Monascus pilosus BCRC38072 is a citrinin-free red yeast rice from yellow mutant of mycelia, which was already sequenced and assembled. The EtOAc-soluble fraction of the 95 % EtOH extract of this strain has resulted in the isolation of three… Expand
