[cytophysiology of penicillium solitum: a producer of lipase].the cell population of penicillin solitum was studied during maximum accumulation of lipase in the medium with electron microscopic and immunofluorescence methods. the data provided a conclusion that 2 types of lypolytic enzymes with various substrate and antigenic characteristics formed in the cells of p. solitum. it is likely that there is a specific inductor for exolipase synthesis as well as relationship endoenzymatic systems.20113064721
comments on "mycobiota and mycotoxins in traditional medicinal seeds from china. toxins 2015, 7, 3858-3875"- in attributing ochratoxin a biosynthesis within the genus penicillium occurring on natural agricultural produce.the unusual attribution of trace amounts of ochratoxin a in some chinese food commodities to penicillium polonicum is questioned by european experience in searches for ochratoxinogenic food-spoilage penicillia, where mistaken attribution is now known to have been due to cryptic penicillium verrucosum contamination. consequently, selection of single-spore isolates is recommended as pre-requisite for attributing mycotoxin biosynthetic potential to fungi.201627258309
