134 fungal cultures isolated from different soil samples were screened for lovastatin production. Of these, 38 isolates produced different levels of lovastatin. An Aspergillus terreus strain GD 13 , producing 190 mg/l of lovastatin was selected and subjected to a rational mutation-selection programme based on the resistance to lovastatin and fatty acid synthase (FAS) inhibitors, viz., iodoacetamide and N-ethylmaleimide. After three cycles of mutagenesis, a hyper-producing mutant (EM 19 ) exhibiting 7.5-fold (1424 mg/l) higher levels of lovastatin when compared to wild type parent strain was obtained.
