Conventional kinesin is a microtubule-dependent motor protein believed to be involved in a variety of intracellular transport processes. In filamentous fungi, conventional kinesin has been implicated in different processes, such as vesicle migration, polarized growth, nuclear distribution, mitochondrial movement and vacuole formation. To gain further(More)
We established a subtractive cDNA library of Aspergillus nidulans to identify differentially expressed genes during sexual development. One of the clones displayed homology to fungal alpha-1,3 glucanases (mutanase). Since alpha-1,3 glucan is considered the main reserve material accumulated during vegetative growth as a cell wall component and consumed(More)
Catalases, peroxidases, and catalase-peroxidases are important enzymes to cope with reactive oxygen species in pro- and eukaryotic cells. In the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans three monofunctional catalases have been described, and a fourth catalase activity was observed in native polyacrylamide gels. The latter activity is probably due to the(More)
The filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans reproduces asexually through the formation of spores on a multicellular aerial structure, called a conidiophore. A key regulator of asexual development is the TFIIIA-type zinc finger containing transcriptional activator Bristle (BRLA). Besides BRLA, the transcription factor ABAA, which is located downstream of(More)
