Morphogenetic strategies and induction of secondary and induction of secondary metabolite biosynthesis in cultured lichen-forming Ascomycota, as exemplified by Cladia retipora (Labill.) Nyl. and Dactylina arctica (Richards) Nyl

Stocker-Worgotter, Elfie; Elix, John


Over the last ten years a considerable number of lichen fungi (200 voucher specimens and their corresponding mycobionts) have been cultured and screened for the formation of secondary compounds (lichen substances). The production of lichen polyketides was found to be strongly affected by the composition of the nutrient media, dominant environmental parameters in the micro-habitat, and also by morphogenesis and cell differentiation of the mycelia. The present investigation deals with two lichens...[Show more]
