Fungal Secondary Metabolites

Secondary metabolites are compounds produced by an organism that are not required for primary metabolic processes. Fungi produce an enormous array of secondary metabolites, some of which are important in industry. Many fungi express secondary metabolites that influence competitive outcomes.The compounds are expressed along with enzymes necessary for extracellular digestion. The precise function of many of these compounds in the natural environment, however, is unclear. fungi influence the organisms that interact with fungi leading to an anthropocentric interpretation of function in the fungus. Some metabolites, referred to as toxins, are compounds that have the potential to kill an organism at concentrations we might use.
