Isolation and identification of secondary metabolites of a strain ofAspergillus terreus, a common food contaminant
2-Hydroxy 3-methyl 1,4-benzoquinone 5,6 epoxide was identified as secondary metabolite of a strain ofAspergillus terreus, a common contaminant of animal feeds. In addition, the following compounds were also tentatively identified to be produced by this organism: 2-hYdroxy 3-methyl 1,4-benzoquinone; 2-methyl 1,4-benzoquinone 5,6-epoxide; naphthazarin epoxide; and 2-hydroxy 3-methyl 1,4-benzoquinone 5, 6-epoxide.
