Abstract

A mixed culture of (GH79) and (CMI 91019B) produced two antibiotics, designated VI and VII, which were not elaborated when either fungus was grown alone. Chemical and spectroscopic analysis of VI, the major component, indicated that this compound was identical to hydroxyaspergillic acid. The minor component. VII, was produced in too low a yield for its identity to be established. However, partial characterization suggests that this antibiotic also belongs to the aspergillic acid group of mycotoxins.
