Also called Penicillium stipitatum

Talaromyces stipitatus is a non-pathogenic filamentous fungus that is the closest known relative of the pathogenic fungus Penicillium marneffei. Talaromyces stipitatus is saprophytic and is commonly found in soil, dung, and decaying plant material. It secretes several feruloyl esterases, which hydrolyze the ester bond between the hydroxycinnamic acids and sugars present in plant cell walls. These enzymes have several potential applications in the agri-food industries.
