While isolating fungal strains from soil samples, two strains, Talaromyces siamensis FKA-61 and Phomopsis sp. FKA-62, were found to produce a black pigment near the boundary with an adjoining colony on agar plates. Moreover, strain FKA-61 inhibited the growth of strain FKA-62. Co-culture of T. siamensis FKA-61 with Phomopsis sp. FKA-62 resulted in the production of an antifungal agent, BE-31405, which proved active against Phomopsis sp. FKA-62. We screened for fungal genera that have the…

BE-31405, a new antifungal antibiotic produced by Penicillium minioluteum. I. Description of producing organism, fermentation, isolation, physico-chemical and biological properties.
The mechanism studies indicated that BE-31405 inhibited the protein synthesis of C. albicans but not of mammalian cells, but showed cytotoxic activity against mammalian cells such as P388 mouse leukemia.
Enhancement of metabolites productivity of Penicillium pinophilum FKI-5653, by co-culture with Trichoderma harzianum FKI-5655
The production of these compounds, except pestalasin A, was enhanced in co-culture to be two to six times higher than in pure culture of Penicillium pinophilum FKI-5653, which was the producer ofThese compounds.

When a Monascus isolate, a producer of Monascus pigments, was cocultured with either Saccharomyces cerevisiae or Aspergillus oryzae in a solid sucrose medium, there were significant morphological
Intimate bacterial–fungal interaction triggers biosynthesis of archetypal polyketides in Aspergillus nidulans
Results provide evidence of specific interaction among microorganisms belonging to different domains and support the hypothesis that not only diffusible signals but intimate physical interactions contribute to the communication among micro organisms and induction of otherwise silent biosynthesis genes.
Bacteria-induced natural product formation in the fungus Aspergillus nidulans requires Saga/Ada-mediated histone acetylation
It is reported that the streptomycete triggers modification of fungal histones, providing previously undescribed evidence of Saga/Ada dependent histone acetylation triggered by prokaryotes.
Plant sesquiterpenes induce hyphal branching in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
Strigolactones are a group of sesquiterpene lactones, previously isolated as seed-germination stimulants for the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche, and a synthetic analogue, GR24, induced extensive hyphal branching in germinating spores of the AM fungus Gigaspora margarita at very low concentrations.
