Morphology Regulatory Metabolites from Arthrobotrys oligospora

Morphology Regulatory Metabolites from Arthrobotrys oligospora | fungi | Scoop.it

Novel autoregulatory metabolites, arthrosporols A–C (1–3), involved in regulating the morphological switch in fungi, were purified and characterized from the carnivorous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora. These compounds possess a novel hybrid carbon skeleton consisting of an epoxy-cyclohexenol combined with a rare monocyclic sesquiterpenol substructure. This is the first report of a monocyclic sesquiterpenol of this type of fungal origin. Compounds 1–3 displayed significant inhibitory activities toward the formation of conidiophores, while compounds 1 and 3 showed the opposite effects on the formation of a two-dimensional network with increasing rates of 40–90% and inhibiting rates of 30–90%, respectively.
