influence of carbon and nitrogen nutrition on fusarin C biosynthesis by Fusarium moniliforme
Jackson, M.A. | Freer, S.N.
The influence of various carbon and nitrogen sources on fusarin C synthesis was examined in submerged cultures of Fusarium moniliforme NRRL 13616. Using a zinc-deficient, synthetic medium, highest levels of fusarin C were produced by cultures grown with urea or ammonium sulfate as the nitrogen source and fructose, sucrose, or glucose as the carbon source. In media supplemented with various concentrations of glucose and ammonium sulfate, glucose concentrations which provided excess carbohydrate significantly increased fusarin C synthesis, regardless of the ammonium sulfate concentration.Show more [+] Less [-]
