The low affinity glucose transporter HxtB is also involved in glucose signalling and metabolism in Aspergillus nidulans
One of the drawbacks during second-generation biofuel production from plant lignocellulosic biomass is the accumulation of glucose, the preferred carbon source of microorganisms, which causes theExpand
