Abstract: This review covers important anticancer and antifungal compounds reported from filamentous fungi and in particular from Aspergillus, Penicillium and Talaromyces. The taxonomy of these fungi is not trivial, so a focus of this review has been to report the correct identity of the producing organisms based on substantial previous in-house chemotaxonomic studies.
Keywords: anticancer; polyketides; non-ribosomal peptides; terpenoids; fungi; natural products; taxonomy
