Cultures of Rhizopus japonicus in synthetic glucose medium convert Carboxin into Carboxin sulfoxide and Carboxin sulfone. In steep dedium, under partially anaerobic conditions, Carboxin sulfoxide and another metabolite, which is formed by the addition of the elements of water, are the main products.
