Effect of culture conditions on metabolites produced by the crinoid-derived fungus Aspergillus ruber 1017

Two different culture media were used to cultivate fungus Aspergillus ruber 1017 and resulted in the isolation of one new compound (1) and 23 known compounds (2–24). Alkaloids were the major metabolite in soybean medium instead of anthraquinone from rice medium. The structures of these compounds were elucidated according to spectroscopic analysis and comparison with reported data. Antibacterial activities of compounds 1–12 against 12 aquatic bacteria were evaluated.
