A considerable number of fungal metabolites have now been isolated and characterised which contain nitrogen as a constituent part of the molecule. The molecular structure of these nitrogenous metabolites has in many cases been determined. The time is now ripe for an attempt to arrange these substances in some sort of order, based on constitution, and to review any evidence available relating to their biosynthesis, in the hope of throwing some light on the fundamental processes of nitrogen incorporation and exchange as exemplified in fungal metabolism.
