Production of bikaverin and gibberellins by Gibberella fujikuroi started after depletion of the nitrogen source, but not after depletion of phosphate. Despite this similarity, the regulation of both pathways by nitrogen involved two different mechanisms. This conclusion was supported by the fact that the production of bikaverin, in contrast to the gibberellins, was not inhibited by nitrate in a mutant that could not utilize it. The different regulation of both pathways was clearly demonstrated… Expand
Stimulation of bikaverin production by sucrose and by salt starvation in Fusarium fujikuroi
TLDR
The induction by salt starvation, but not by sucrose, correlated with an increase in messenger RNA levels of gene bik1, encoding a polyketide synthase of the bikaverin pathway, an effect not exhibited for the production of gibberellins and carotenoids. Expand
Nitrogen repression of fumonisin B1 biosynthesis in Gibberella fujikuroi.
TLDR
Fumonisins are a group of structurally related mycotoxins produced by Gibberella fujikuroi and biosynthesis of fumonisin B1 is regulated by a mechanism involving nitrogen metabolite repression, suggesting that control strategies that target the regulatory elements of nitrogen metabolism may be effective at reducing the risk of fumingonisin contamination in food.

Deletion of the Gibberella fujikuroi glutamine synthetase gene has significant impact on transcriptional control of primary and secondary metabolism
TLDR
Not only glutamine, but also GS itself might play an important role in nitrogen metabolite repression, as reported in Gibberella fujikuroi. Expand
Optimization of gibberellic acid production by Methylobacterium oryzae CBMB20
TLDR
The favorable carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) sources and ratios and cultural conditions, such as incubation temperature, pH of the culture medium, and incubation period for the maximum production of GA₃ by Methylobacterium oryzae CBMB20, a novel plant growth promoting bacterium are investigated.

Adenylyl Cyclase Plays a Regulatory Role in Development, Stress Resistance and Secondary Metabolism in Fusarium fujikuroi
TLDR
A targeted mutation of the acyA gene of F. fujikuroi showed enhanced sensitivity to oxidative stress (H2O2), but no change in heavy metal resistance or in the ability to colonize tomato tissue, indicating a high versatility in the regulatory roles played by cAMP in this fungal group. Expand
Aeration affects acetate destination in Gibberella fujikuroi.
TLDR
Feeding experiments with labeled leucine or acetate resulted in different proportions of labeled palmitic acid and bikaverin, indicating that these compounds are synthesized from independent acetate pools. Expand
Bikaverin production and applications
TLDR
The diverse biological activities and the increasing information on the biochemical and genetic basis of its production make bikaverin a metabolite of increasing biotechnological interest. Expand
Regulation of Carotenogenesis and Secondary Metabolism by Nitrogen in Wild-Type Fusarium fujikuroi and Carotenoid-Overproducing Mutants
TLDR
Results suggest regulatory connections between carotenoid biosynthesis and nitrogen-controlled biosynthetic pathways in this fungus. Expand
Role of the Fusarium fujikuroi TOR Kinase in Nitrogen Regulation and Secondary Metabolism
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time in a filamentous fungus that the TOR kinase is involved in nitrogen regulation of secondary metabolism and that rapamycin affects also the expression of genes involved in translation control, ribosome biogenesis, carbon metabolism, and autophagy. Expand

Regulation of Gibberellin Biosynthesis in Gibberella fujikuroi.
TLDR
The specific regulation of gibBerellin biosynthesis by the nitrogen source imposes a revision of the concept that gibberellins are secondary metabolites whose production is triggered by imbalance or cessation of growth. Expand
Inhibition of gibberellin biosynthesis by nitrate in Gibberella fujikuroi
TLDR
It is concluded that nitrate inhibits gibberellin biosynthesis by itself, independently of the intracellular signal that conveys nitrogen availability. Expand
Production of gibberellins and bikaverin by cells of Gibberella fujikuroi immobilized in carrageenan
TLDR
Gibberellin and bikaverin could be produced in a semi-continuous fashion with both free and immobilized cells for a period of 16 d in a resuspension medium containing 0.12 mM or 0.60 mM ammonium chloride. Expand
Gibberellins and Carotenoids in the Wild Type and Mutants of Gibberella fujikuroi
TLDR
A new screening procedure was used to isolate 14 gib mutants of Gibberella fujikuroi with modifications in the production of gibberellins with modifications of carotenoid biosynthesis, finding that alpha-Picoline, an inhibitor of lycopene cyclase in G. fujkuroi, inhibits gib berellin biosynthesis.

Gibberellin Biosynthesis in gib Mutants of Gibberella fujikuroi(*)
TLDR
The Ascomycete Gibberella fujikuroi synthesizes gibberellins, fujenal, carotenoids, and other terpenoids and the gib mutations did not modify the ability of the fungus to live as a saprophyte. Expand

Some aspects are described of the kinetics of the growth of Gibberella fujikuroi in nitrogen-limited media containing either ammonium nitrate, ammonium acetate, ammonia tartrate, urea, or glycine, and the significance of kinetic parameters used in this, and published studies, is discussed. Expand

TLDR
The biosyntheses of sterols, gibberellins and carotenoids in Gibberella are physically separated in different subcellular compartments with independent substrate pools, indicating that this pathway is regulated independently from other terpenoid pathways. Expand

Results from animal tests indicate that gibberellins A 3 has very low mammalian toxicity and that it occurs naturally in many, if not all, vegetable foodstuffs, in some cases in amounts greater than would occur from extraneous addition. Expand
