Abstract

The pentacyclic triterpene alcohol β-amyrin, which is commonly found in plants, was isolated from wild-type cultures of the ascomycete fungus The isolated β-amyrin was characterized by TLC, GLC, and HPLC and produced identical mass and H NMR spectra to those of authentic β-amyrin. This material was isolated from static (non-shaking) cultures.
