Fungi grow over a relatively wide pH range and adapt to extracellular pH through a genetic regulatory system mediated by a key component PacC, which is a pH transcription regulator. The cellulase production of the filamentous fungi Trichoderma reesei is sensitive to ambient pH. To investigate the connection between cellulase expression regulation and(More)
Lactobacillus brevis is a promising lactic acid producing strain that simultaneously utilizes glucose and xylose from lignocellulosic hydrolysate without carbon catabolic repression and inhibition. The production of by-products acetic acid and ethanol has been the major drawback of this strain. Two genes, pfkA (fructose-6-phosphate kinase [PFK]) and fbaA(More)
An improved RNA interference method was developed in Trichoderma reesei, using convergent dual promoters for efficient and high-throughput RNA silencing. This new vector allowed for the silencing of the eGFP gene and target genes to occur simultaneously, significantly facilitating the rapid screening of the transformants using eGFP as a reporter.
A fungal species with a high yield of β-glucosidase was isolated and identified as Talaromyces piceus 9-3 (anamorph: Penicillium piceum) by morphological and molecular characterization. Through dimethyl sulphate mutagenesis, the cellulase over-producing strain T. piceus H16 was obtained. The FPase activity and β-glucosidase activity of T. piceus H16 were(More)
Many species of Penicillium have exhibited great potential for lignocellulose hydrolysis. The filamentous fungus Talaromyces piceus 9-3 (anamorph: Penicillium piceum), which was isolated from compost wastes in China, was sequenced in this study. Compared with the cellulase producer T. reesei, T. piceus 9-3 processes a lignocellulolytic enzyme system(More)
Trichoderma reesei is widely used as a host for homologus and heterologus protein expression because of its well-known capability of protein secretion, especially cellulases secretion. In this study, a binary vector which could be used for protein expression was constructed with a constitutive promoter of rp2 gene. This vector contained the expression(More)
Plants have developed mutualistic symbiosis with diverse fungal endophytes that increase their fitness by conferring abiotic and biotic stress tolerance. However, the molecular regulation mechanisms involved in stress tolerance remain largely unknown. Drunken horsegrass (Achnatherum inebrians), an important perennial bunchgrass in China, forms a naturally(More)
Schizochytrium is a microalgae-like fungus and is widely used for producing docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It is also a promising source of squalene and carotenoids. However, few fermentation strategies are available in enhancing squalene and carotenoid content in Schizochytrium. This study showed that butanol addition had multiple effects on Schizochytrium(More)
Ethanolamine kinase (ATP:ethanolamine O-phosphotransferase, EC catalyzes the committed step of phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway. The functions of eki genes that encode ethanolamine kinase have been intensively studied in mammalian cells, fruit flies and yeast. However, the role of the eki gene has not yet been(More)
Hydrophobin proteins originate from filamentous fungi, which are able to self-assemble at water-air interfaces. Hydrophobins have multiple functions in fungal growth and development. In this study, the function of the Trhfb3 gene encoding a class II hydrophobin was characterized in Trichoderma reesei. The null mutant of Trhfb3 presented a wettable phenotype(More)
