Production of griseofulvin from marine fungi Penicillium fellutanum
Anusha Mayavan and Sangeetha D
The marine world offers an extremely rich resource for important compounds of structurally novel and biologically active metabolites. Among them Griseofulvin is one of the representative antifungal agent which is metabolic product of many species of Penicillium. The Present study is carried out in production of griseofulvin from marine fungus Penicillium fellutanum using three different media (semisolid medium, potato dextrose agar medium and minimal medium) for maximum production of Griseofulvin. TLC and FT-IR techniques were carried out for determination of Griseofulvin from crude extracts. Among these three media were tested, semisolid media exhibited more biomass and Griseofulvin production when compared with others.
