Plant kingdam is a rich source of structural biodiversity and offers a variety of natural products. Plants have been utilized to produce various types of medicines for thousands of years. Fungal endophytes from plants are well known for the production of bioactive metabolites that have wide prospects for use in industry and medicine. Endopytes are ubiquitous in nature found in vitually all plant species studied to date. The Present study aims isolation and screening of novel endophytic fungi producing Cajaninstilbene acid (CSA) from Cajanus cajan, Linn. Millsp. CSA has prominent pharmacological activities. Total 50 endophytic mycoflora were grouped into 6 genera on the basis of morphological characteristics. CSA producing fungi were identified as Fusarium solani, Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium proliferatum and Fusarium moniliformae respectively.
