Xyr1 (xylanase regulator 1) of the ascomycete Hypocrea jecorina (anamorph Trichoderma reesei) was recently demonstrated to play an essential role in the transcriptional regulation of the xyn1 (xylanase 1-encoding) gene expression. Consequently, this study reports on the deletion of the xyr1 gene from the H. jecorina genome. Comparative studies of the growth(More)
Polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) is a key regulator of mitotic progression and cell division, and small molecule inhibitors of PLK1 are undergoing clinical trials to evaluate their utility in cancer therapy. Despite this importance, current knowledge about the identity of PLK1 substrates is limited. Here we present the results of a proteome-wide analysis of(More)
Protein phosphorylation is a key regulatory mechanism of cellular signalling processes. The analysis of phosphorylated proteins and the characterisation of phosphorylation sites under different biological conditions are some of the most challenging tasks in current proteomics research. Reduction of the sample complexity is one major step for the analysis of(More)
Signaling networks regulate cellular responses to external stimuli through post-translational modifications such as protein phosphorylation. Phosphoproteomics facilitate the large-scale identification of kinase substrates. Yet, the characterization of critical connections within these networks and the identification of respective kinases remain the major(More)
Hypocrea jecorina (anamorph Trichoderma reesei) is a filamentous ascomycete of industrial importance due to its hydrolases (e.g., xylanases and cellulases). The regulation of gene expression can influence the composition of the hydrolase cocktail, and thus, transcription factors are a major target of current research. Here, we design an approach for(More)
