Production of red pigments (naphthoquinones) by the insect pathogenic fungus Cordyceps unilateralis BCC 1869 was investigated in this study. Cultivation conditions, including temperature, intitial pH of medium, and aeration, were optimised to improve the yield of total naphthoquinones in shake-flask culture of C. unilateralis. The highest yield of total naphthoquinones (3 g L−1) was obtained from a 28-day culture grown in potato dextrose broth with an initial pH of 7.0, at 28°C with shaking… Expand
Optimization of Submerged Culture for the Production of Naphthoquinones Pigment by Fusarium verticillioides
A locally isolated fungus genus, Fusarium verticillioides., was evaluated as a potential producer of naphthoquinone pigment. Five variable growth media (type of complex media, carbon source, nitrogenExpand
Genes differentially expressed under naphthoquinone-producing conditions in the entomopathogenic fungus Ophiocordyceps unilateralis.
TLDR
The ant-pathogenic fungus Ophiocordyceps unilateralis BCC1869 produces six naphthoquinone derivatives which have antibacterial, anticancer, and antimalarial activities and are red pigments with potential for use as natural colorants. Expand
Semi-defined Medium for in vitro Cultivation of the Fastidious Insect Pathogenic Fungus Cordyceps unilateralis
TLDR
To obtain an inexpensive and less complicated medium, the effects of carbon and nitrogen sources, salt solution and carbon-to-nitrogen ratio on the growth of this fungus were examined and a new semi-defined medium was achieved, supported blastospore formation and mycelial growth of all tested C. unilateralis isolate.

Optimization and characterization of red pigment production from an endophytic fungus, Nigrospora aurantiaca CMU-ZY2045, and its potential source of natural dye for use in textile dyeing
TLDR
Crude fungal red pigment revealed the highest staining ability in cotton fabrics and displayed excellent fastness to washing, which showing negative cytotoxicity at the concentrations used to cell culture is the first report on bostrycin production from N. aurantiaca. Expand
Production and secretion of naphthoquinones is mediated by the MFS transporter MFS1 in the entomopathogenic fungus Ophiocordyceps sp. BCC1869
TLDR
HPLC analysis of crude extracts of mutants and wild type demonstrated that four naphthoquinone derivatives, erythrostominone, epierythrostominol, deoxyeryth Frostomin one, and deoxyurythrostol, were the major naphTHoquinones produced and excreted in staggering quantities by the mutant C7, compared to the wild type.

TLDR
The obtained results document the effective means of enhanced production of naphthoquinones and phenolics in the suspension culture of F. solani PSC-R at bioreactor level. Expand

Effects of Different Carbon and Nitrogen Sources on Naphthoquinone Production of Cordyceps unilateralis BCC 1869
TLDR

Production of red pigment by submerged culture of Paecilomyces sinclairii
TLDR
The high concentration of pigment produced by P. sinclairii demonstrates the possibility of commercial production of pigment by this strain, considering its relatively high production yield and light stability. Expand
The effect of pH and amino acids on conidiation and pigment production of Monascus major ATCC 16362 and Monascus rubiginosus ATCC 16367 in submerged shaken culture.
TLDR
The addition of amino acids inhibits nitrate and ammonium uptake suggesting the need for an early intracellular nitrogen limitation to induce conidiation, and the effect of amino acid addition is totally annulled. Expand
Improvement of red pigment/citrinin production ratio as a function of environmental conditions by monascus ruber
TLDR
The growth and metabolic behaviour of the filamentous fungus Monascus ruber were studied in submerged cultures under various aeration and agitation conditions and a low oxygen transfer coefficient was required to improve the red pigment/citrinin production ratio. Expand

Production of yellow pigments in submerged culture of a mutant of Monascus spp.
TLDR
A mutant of Monascus mold is found which is capable of producing a high concentration of yellow pigments instead of red pigments produced by its parents strains, and which produced the maximal amount of pigment under the optimal conditions for pigment production of its parent strains. Expand

TLDR
A hypothetical scheme for the regulation of biosynthesis of actinomycin and melanoid pigments by temperature is presented and is considered as a protective reaction of the organism to an increase in the temperature of the environment and in UV radiation which is possible under natural conditions as a consequence of temperature elevation.
