Distinct white collar‐1 genes control specific light responses in Mucor circinelloides
TLDR
Analysis of both responses to different light wavelengths within the visible spectrum demonstrated that phototropism is induced by green and blue light, whereas carotenogenesis is only induced byblue light, which suggests the existence of blue‐light photoreceptors in M. circinelloides.
Direct Transformation of Fungal Biomass from Submerged Cultures into Biodiesel
TLDR
It is shown here that the biomass from submerged cultures of the oleaginous fungus M. circinelloides, which has powerful genetic tools, is shown to be an excellent fuel for existing diesel engines.
A negative regulator of light-inducible carotenogenesis in Mucor circinelloides
TLDR
Results strongly indicate that crgA acts as a negative regulator of light-inducible carotenogenesis in M. circinelloides.
The RNAi machinery controls distinct responses to environmental signals in the basal fungus Mucor circinelloides
TLDR
This work shows that the RNAi pathways play a relevant role in the regulation of a significant number of endogenous genes in M. circinelloides during exponential and stationary growth phases and opens up an important avenue for in-depth study of genes involved in theregulation of physiological and developmental processes in this fungal model.
Secretion of a Fungal Extracellular Catalase by Claviceps purpurea During Infection of Rye: Putative Role in Pathogenicity and Suppression of Host Defense.
TLDR
The secretion of fungal catalase is a novel finding in phytopathology, and its role in the ubiquitous ergot disease is discussed.
Role of the White Collar 1 Photoreceptor in Carotenogenesis, UV Resistance, Hydrophobicity, and Virulence of Fusarium oxysporum
TLDR
Infection experiments with tomato plants and immunodepressed mice revealed that Wc1 is dispensable for pathogenicity on plants but required for full virulence on mammals.
Comparison of Biochemical Activities between High and Low Lipid-Producing Strains of Mucor circinelloides: An Explanation for the High Oleaginicity of Strain WJ11
TLDR
In the lipid accumulation phase, activities of glucose-6- phosphate dehydrogenase and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogensase in strain WJ11 were greater than in CBS 277.49, and these enzymes may cooperatively regulate the fatty acid biosynthesis in these two strains.
