Filamentous fungi are the cause of serious human and plant diseases but are also exploited in biotechnology as production platforms. Comparative genomics has documented their genetic diversity, and(More)
1,3-alpha-D-Glucan is an important component of the cell wall of filamentous fungi. We have identified a family of five 1,3-alpha-D-glucan synthase-encoding genes in Aspergillus niger. The agsA gene(More)
HacA/Xbp1 is a conserved bZIP transcription factor in eukaryotic cells which regulates gene expression in response to various forms of secretion stress and as part of secretory cell differentiation.(More)
Perturbation of cell wall synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, either by mutations in cell wall synthesis-related genes or by adding compounds that interfere with normal cell wall assembly,(More)
