Novel homologous lactate transporter improves l-lactic acid production from glycerol in recombinant strains of Pichia pastoris
It was shown that P. pastoris has a great potential as a fermentative organism for producing l-lactic acid using glycerol as the carbon source at limited oxygenation conditions (below 0.05 % DO in the bioreactor).
Identification and characterization of putative xylose and cellobiose transporters in Aspergillus nidulans
This work identified two proteins in A. nidulans, CltA and CltB, with roles in cellobiose transport and cellulose signaling, respectively, and shows that the introduction of additional functional copies of ClTB increases the growth in the presence of low concentrations of cellobioses, strongly indicating Clt B is able to transport cellobiOSE.
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 the
Nutritional Heterogeneity Among Aspergillus fumigatus Strains Has Consequences for Virulence in a Strain- and Host-Dependent Manner
The virulence of strains Afs35 and A1163 was assessed in a triamcinolone murine model of PA and found to be significantly different, confirming the known importance of using different mouse models to assess strain-specific pathogenicity and highlighting the importance of nitrogen metabolism for virulence.
