    5 days ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    A bright yellow pigment-producing endophytic fungus strain GMRS1 was isolated from the meristems of Delonix regia Raf. The fungus was identified as Fusarium solani on grounds of morphological and molecular analysis. The chemical composition of the crude pigments was partially analyzed by Quadrupole Time-of-flight Liquid chromatography/Mass spectrometry/Mass spectrometry and the major compounds were reported. The crude pigments were proved toxic and unsafe by acute oral toxicity study on Wistar rats. The total cholesterol and glucose levels of the rats ingested with crude pigments...
