Abstract

Summary: was isolated from the inner bark of a small limb of Himalayan yew, and was shown to produce taxol in mycelial culture. Taxol was identified by spectroscopic and chromatographic comparisons with authentic taxol. Optimal taxol production occurred after 2-3 weeks in still culture at 23°C. [C]Acetate and [C]phenylalanine served as precursors for fungal [C]taxol. These observations on are discussed in relation to the biological importance of taxol production by fungi in general.
