Astin C production by the endophytic fungus Cyanodermella asteris
What is it about?
This work describes the scale up of the production of astin C by the fungal endophyte Cyanodermella asteris.
Why is it important?
Cyanodermella asteris is a fungal endophyte recently isolated from the medicinal plant Aster tataricus. C.asteris produces astin C, a cyclic pentapeptide with anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties. In this work we show that the production of astin C can be improved by using immobilized cell culture conditions.
