A water-soluble compound related to zearalenone was isolated from a culture of Fusarium graminearum 30 grown in rice. The structure of the novel metabolite was determined to be zearalenone-4-sulfate on the basis of fast-atom-bombardment mass spectrometry, proton nuclear magnetic resonance, UV spectroscopy, and by chemical and enzymatic reactions. Strains representing Fusarium equiseti, Fusarium sambucinum, and Fusarium roseum produced the sulfate conjugate as well. In the rat uterus enlargement… CONTINUE READING
