Terrein is a fungal metabolite with multiple biological activities, especially with great value in medicine. However, the mass production of single configuration terrein is still a big challenge. In this study, the effects of acetic acid, sodium acetate, citric acid and sodium citrate on the (+)-terrein production by Aspergillus terreus strain PF26 derived from marine sponge Phakellia fusca were investigated. Sodium citrate was selected for fed-batch cultivation because it showed the best effect on (+)-terrein production among the four regulators tested. As a result, 5.38 g/L (+)-terrein production was achieved by feeding 10 mM sodium citrate on the 3rd day in shake flask, which was 33.8 % higher than the control and represented the highest yield of (+)-terrein. In a 7.5-L stirred bioreactor, 2.58 g/L of (+)-terrein production was achieved by the feeding of 10 mM sodium citrate on the 8th day. The results from this study lay a basis for the high-yield production of (+)-terrein by fermentation.
