From the mycelia of Penicillium oxalicum two new compounds, decaturins E (1) and F (2), have been isolated, along with four known analogues, decaturin A (3), decaturin C (4), decaturin D (5), and oxalicine B (6). The structures were determined by HR-ESI-MS and 1D and 2D NMR analysis.

New Verrucosidin Derivatives from the Marine-Derived Fungus Penicillium sp. XL-01
Two new verrucosidin derivatives, named nordeoxyverrucosidin (1) and norverrucosidinol acetate (2), along with three known analogues (3–5) were isolated from the marine-derived fungus Penicillium sp.
Phenylhydrazone and Quinazoline Derivatives from the Cold-Seep-Derived Fungus Penicillium oxalicum
Three new phenylhydrazones, penxahydrazones A–C, and two new quinazolines, penoxazolones A and B, with unique linkages were isolated from the fungus Penicillium oxalicum obtained from the deep sea cold seep, showing inhibition of several marine phytoplankton species and marine-derived bacteria.

Genome mining and molecular characterization of the biosynthetic gene cluster of a diterpenic meroterpenoid, 15-deoxyoxalicine B, in Penicillium canescens† †Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available. See DOI: 10.1039/c5sc01965f
The biosynthetic pathway of a diterpenic meroterpenoid was elucidated by combination of genome mining, gene targeting, and natural product chemistry.
Taxonomic revision of the biotechnologically important species Penicillium oxalicum with the description of two new species from acidic and saline soils
This study revised a set of Penicillium isolates from various sources including P. oxalicum-like strains obtained from acidic and saline soils in the Soos Nature Reserve (Czech Republic) and identified two phylogenetic sister species that can be distinguished from P.Oxalicum based on molecular data, morphological characters, and extrolite profiles.
Comprehensive Overview on the Chemistry and Biological Activities of Selected Alkaloid Producing Marine-Derived Fungi as a Valuable Reservoir of Drug Entities
Most of the reported bioactive alkaloids showed considerable biological activities mainly cytotoxic followed by antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant; however, a few showed anti-inflammatory and antifouling activities and required further investigations for additional biological activities.
