Aspergillus terreus, also known as Aspergillus terrestris, is a fungus (mold) found worldwide in soil. Although thought to be strictly asexual until recently, A. terreus is now known to be capable of sexual reproduction. This saprotrophic fungus is prevalent in warmer climates such as tropical and subtropical regions. Aside from being located in soil, A. terreus has also been found in habitats such as decomposing vegetation and dust. A. terreus is commonly used in industry to produce important organic acids, such as itaconic acid and cis-aconitic acid, as well as enzymes, like xylanase. It was also the initial source for the drug mevinolin (lovastatin), a drug for lowering serum cholesterol.

dbo:abstract
  • Aspergillus terreus es un hongo, muy conocido por su refractancia a la terapia anfotericina B. Fue también la fuente inicial para la droga mevinolina (lovastatina), una droga para bajar el colesterol sérico. (es)
  • Aspergillus terreus ist ein Schimmelpilz der Gattung Aspergillus, die als Saprophyten weltweit vorkommen und Intoxikationen oder Allergien hervorrufen können. (de)
  • Aspergillus terreus est une moisissure couramment utilisée dans l'industrie pour produire d'importants acides organiques, tels que l'acide itaconique et l'acide cis-aconitique. C'était aussi la première source pour la mévinoline (lovastatine), un médicament utilisé pour abaisser le taux sérique de cholestérol. A. terreus peut causer des infections opportunistes chez les personnes immunodéficientes. Il est résistant à l'amphotéricine B. A. terreus produit également de l'acide aspterrique et de la 6-hydroxymelléine, inhibiteurs du développement du pollen chez Arabidopsis thaliana. (fr)

It was also the initial source for the drug mevinolin (lovastatin), a drug for lowering serum cholesterol. A. terreus can cause opportunistic infection in people with deficient immune systems. It is relatively resistant to amphotericin B, a common antifungal drug. Aspergillus terreus also produces aspterric acid and 6-hydroxymellein, inhibitors of pollen development in Arabidopsis thaliana. (en)
