    Notes: Summary A lovastatin-hyperproducing culture ofAspergillus terreus was shown to produce several co-metabolites extracted from whole broth. The predominant co-metabolite was the benzophenone, sulochrin, reported to arise from a polyketide biosynthetic pathway. This compound was targeted for elimination by classical mutagenesis and screening. A surface culture method employing microtiter, plates was used to ferment mutants for the primary screen. Qualitative determinations of lovastatin and sulochrin production were achieved by high-performance thin-layer chromatography. A mutant, strain AH6, which produced lovastatin titers equivalent to the parent culture and no detectable sulochrin was isolated. In addition, a lovastatin-hyperproducing mutant designated CB4 was capable of producing 16% more lovastatin and 30% less sulochrin than the parent culture in shake flask fermentations. In a pilot-scale 250-gallon fermentation, strain CB4 gave a 20% increase in lovastatin titer while producing 83% less sulochrin than the parent culture.
