Abstract

Plant hormones were evaluated for their ability to activate fungal secondary metabolite production. Three synthetic cytokinins, kinetin, 6-benzylaminopurine, and forchlorfenuron, showed remarkable enhancement of the production of aromatic polyketides derived from emodin in a fungus, Arthrinium sacchari, and allowed us to isolate a new polyketide. Furthermore, we firstly demonstrated the potential of plant hormones to activate a wide range of fungal secondary metabolite production processes.
