Transgenic expression of the Trichoderma harzianum hsp70 gene increases Arabidopsis resistance to heat and other abiotic stresses.
The ability of some Trichoderma strains, a biological control agent, to overcome extreme environmental conditions has previously been reported and related to heat-shock proteins (HSPs). TheseExpand

Expression of the cefG gene is limiting for cephalosporin biosynthesis in Acremonium chrysogenum
Abstract The conversion of deacetylcephalosporin C to cephalosporin C is inefficient in most Acremonium chrysogenum strains. The cefG gene, which encodes deacetylcephalosporin C acetyltransferase, isExpand

Characterization and nitrogen-source regulation at the transcriptional level of the gdhA gene of Aspergillus awamori encoding an NADP-dependent glutamate dehydrogenase
Abstract A 28.7-kb DNA region containing the gdhA gene of Aspergillus awamori was cloned from a genomic DNA library. A fragment of 2570 nucleotides was sequenced that contained ORF1, of 1380 bp,Expand

The Production of Cephalosporin C by Acremonium chrysogenum is Improved by the Intracellular Expression of a Bacterial Hemoglobin
A DNA vector for expressing an oxygen-binding heme protein (Vitreoscilla hemoglobin, or VHb) in filamentous fungi was constructed and introduced into a cephalosporin C-producing strain of AcremoniumExpand

Evolution of structural diversity of trichothecenes, a family of toxins produced by plant pathogenic and entomopathogenic fungi
Trichothecenes are a family of terpenoid toxins produced by multiple genera of fungi, including plant and insect pathogens. Some trichothecenes produced by the fungus Fusarium are among theExpand

Overexpression and lack of degradation of thaumatin in an aspergillopepsin A‐defective mutant of Aspergillus awamori containing an insertion in the pep A gene
Abstract A gene encoding the sweet-tasting protein thaumatin (tha) with optimized codon usage was expressed in Aspergillus awamori. Mutants of A. awamori with reduced proteolytic activity wereExpand

ThPTR2, a di/tri-peptide transporter gene from Trichoderma harzianum.
The generation of a wide ESTs library and database from Trichoderma harzianum CECT 2413 was the base for identifying the gene ThPTR2, coding for a PTR family di/tri-peptide transporter. The deducedExpand
