Comparative genome sequence analysis underscores mycoparasitism as the ancestral life style of Trichoderma
A better understanding of mycoparasitism is offered, and the development of improved biocontrol strains for efficient and environmentally friendly protection of plants is enforced.

d-Glucose and d-fructose phosphorylation is completely abolished in the double mutant, which consequently cannot grow on either sugar, while the glucokinase single mutant exhibits no nutritional deficiencies and transcriptional repression by d-glucose is fully retained in the two single kinase mutants.
Comparison of Botrytis cinerea populations isolated from two open-field cultivated host plants.
Comparative genomics reveals high biological diversity and specific adaptations in the industrially and medically important fungal genus Aspergillus
Comparative studies of key aspects of fungal biology, including primary and secondary metabolism, stress response, biomass degradation, and signal transduction, revealed both conservation and diversity among the species, allowing for the first time a genus-wide view of the biological diversity of the aspergilli.
Cloning and characterization of the abfB gene coding for the major α-l-arabinofuranosidase (ABF B) of Aspergillus niger
Deoxyoligonucleotide mixtures were designed to be employed as primers in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on A. niger genomic DNA and the abfB gene encoding ABF B was isolated from a genomic library using such an amplification product as a probe.

A. niger abnA is the first gene encoding an ABN to be isolated and characterized, and contains three introns within its structural region and codes for a protein of 321 amino acids which results in a mature protein of 302 amino acids with a deduced molecular mass of 32.5 kDa.
Characteristics of physiological inducers of the ethanol utilization (alc) pathway in Aspergillus nidulans.
This study shows that compounds with catabolism related to that of ethanol, i.e. primary alcohols, primary monoamines and l-threonine, act as inducers because their breakdown results in the production of inducing aliphatic aldehydes.
AcpA, a member of the GPR1/FUN34/YaaH membrane protein family, is essential for acetate permease activity in the hyphal fungus Aspergillus nidulans.

This report is the first to provide evidence for the identification of an acetate transporter in filamentous fungi and has designated AN5226 as acpA (for acetate permease A), which is mediated by the specific transcriptional activation of genes of the acetate-utilization pathway FacB.
