Production of extracellular proteins plays an important role in the physiology of Trichoderma reesei and has potential industrial application. To improve the efficiency of protein secretion, we overexpressed in T. reesei the DPM1 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, encoding mannosylphosphodolichol (MPD) synthase, under homologous, constitutively acting(More)
The genus Trichoderma contains fungi with high relevance for humans, with applications in enzyme production for plant cell wall degradation and use in biocontrol. Here, we provide a broad, comprehensive overview of the genomic content of these species for "hot topic" research aspects, including CAZymes, transport, transcription factors, and development,(More)
Dolichol phosphate mannose (DPM) synthase activity, which is required in N:-glycosylation, O-mannosylation, and glycosylphosphatidylinositol membrane anchoring of protein, has been postulated to regulate the Trichoderma reesei secretory pathway. We have cloned a T.reesei cDNA that encodes a 243 amino acid protein whose amino acid sequence shows 67% and 65%(More)
BACKGROUND Dolichol phosphate mannose synthase (DPMS) is a key enzyme in N- and O-linked glycosylations and glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor synthesis. DPMS generates DPM, the substrate for mentioned processes, by the transfer of mannosyl residue from GDP-Man to dolichol phosphate. Here we describe the role of DPMS for Candida albicans physiology(More)
Due to its natural properties, Trichoderma reesei is commonly used in industry-scale production of secretory proteins. Since almost all secreted proteins are O-glycosylated, modulation of the activity of enzymes of the O-glycosylation pathway are likely to affect protein production and secretion or change the glycosylation pattern of the secreted proteins,(More)
Mutations in the cysB, sconB and sconC genes affect sulfur metabolism in Aspergillus nidulans in different ways. The cysB mutation blocks synthesis of cysteine by the main pathway and leads to a shortage of this amino acid. The sconB and sconC mutations affect subunits of the SCF ubiquitin ligase complex, which inactivates the MetR transcription factor in(More)
In fungi, transfer of the first mannosyl residue to proteins during their O-glycosylation is catalyzed by protein O-mannosyltransferases. Integration of additional copies of the pmt1 gene into Trichoderma reesei genome unexpectedly resulted in the silencing of pmt1 expression. Strains carrying the additional copies of pmt1 gene exhibited lower total(More)
A cDNA coding for GTP: alpha-d-mannose-1-phosphate guanyltransferase (MPG1 transferase) (EC was isolated from a cDNA library of the Trichoderma reesei RutC-30 strain by suppression of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutation in the DPM1gene encoding mannosylphosphodolichol (MPD) synthase. The nucleotide sequence of the 1.6 kb-long cDNA revealed(More)
To elucidate the regulation and limiting factors in the glycosylation of secreted proteins, the mpg1 and dpm1 genes from Trichoderma reesei (Hypocrea jecorina) encoding GTP:alpha-D-mannose-1-phosphate guanyltransferase and dolichyl phosphate mannose synthase (DPMS), respectively, were overexpressed in T. reesei. No significant increases were observed in(More)
O-Mannosylation is suggested to be essential for protein secretion in Trichoderma reesei. In protein O-glycosylation, the first mannosyl residue is transferred to a serine or threonine hydroxyl group of the protein from dolichyl phosphate mannose by protein O-mannosyltransferase. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, seven PMT genes have been cloned coding for these(More)
