ABSTRACT


A growing evidence indicates that the endophytic fungus Aspergillus is one of rich sources of natural products with a broad spectrum of biological activities. Up to now, 162 secondary metabolites had been structurally identified from 11 endophytic Aspergillus spp. and 67 of them were shown to have strong bioactivities with potential application in drug discovery. This review focuses on biology and chemistry of endophytic Aspergilli, especially their bioactive secondary metabolites. Covering: 2004 to 2014.
