Screening and Molecular Characterization of Natural Fungal Isolates Producing Lovastatin

Aspergillus sp. is known to produce cholesterol reducing drug lovastatin. Limited investigations have been made on screening of high yielding strains from hitherto under-utilized natural sources. With this objective, in the present study, various fungal cultures (130 in number) were isolated from natural sources such as (soil from paddy fields, oyster mushroom beds from the fields and compost) from different regions of interiors of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu of India. All the isolates were identified through standard microbiological methods such as morphological, microscopic methods.
