Abstract

Beauvericin was analyzed in three forms of the Lepidoptra pathogenic fungus Isaria tenuipes 4 isolates: a natural specimen, b cultivated synnemata on rice media, and c mycelia from fermentation in liquid media. Beauvericin was detected in very low amounts in all tested natural specimens. Synnemata on rice contained much higher concentrations of beauvericin than the corresponding natural materials, although the concentrations were lower than mycelia from liquid fermentation. The results casted a caution that beauvericin concentration should be carefully checked, as a possible toxic constituent, upon mass production of a selected strain of Isaria tenuipes for health food purposes.
