Abstract english

The isolation and structure determination of conidiogenol and conidiogenone, tetracyclic diterpenes with a novel carbon skeleton, from extracts of the fermentation broth of Penicillium cyclopium is reported. Conidiogenol and conidiogenone are potent and selective inducers of conidiogenesis in P. cyclopium in liquid culture, and relay information about the environmental conditions to the producing organism.
