The fungus Fusarium fujikuroi (Gibberella fujikuroi mating group C) exhibits a rich secondary metabolism that includes the synthesis of compounds of biotechnological interest, such as gibberellins, bikaverin, and carotenoids. The effect of the carbon source on their production was checked using a two-phase incubation protocol, in which nine different sugars were added upon transfer of the fungus from repressed to appropriate inducing conditions, i.e., nitrogen starvation for gibberellins and… CONTINUE READING
