Table 2 Theobromine degradation metabolites detected in the liquid culture of four candidate isolates

From: 3-Methylxanthine production through biodegradation of theobromine by Aspergillus sydowii PT-2

Candidate isolates Metabolites
A. niger PT-1 Not found
A. sydowii PT-2 3-Methylxanthine and xanthine
A. ustus PT-6 3,7-Dimethyluric acid and 3-methyluric acid
A. tamarii PT-7 3,7-Dimethyluric acid, 3-methylxanthine, 7-methylxanthine, 3-methyluric acid, xanthine and uric acid
  1. TLM-S inoculated by candidate isolates were analyzed by HPLC for 3,7-dimethyluric acid, 3-methylxanthine, 7-methylxanthine, 3-methyluric acid, 7-methyluric acid, xanthine and uric acid
