Aspergillus oryzae AS 3.951 is widely used in Chinese soy sauce manufacture, but little is known about the profiles of the extracellular proteins from the culture of soybean koji. In this study, we carried out MALDI-TOF/TOF MS analysis of extracellular proteins during koji culture. Besides well-known proteins (TAA and Oryzin), a variety of aminopeptidase and proteases were identical at the proteome level. This suggests that A. oryzae AS 3.951 has a powerful capacity to digest soybean protein. 

A study of extracellular proteins produced by Aspergillus oryzae

These findings confirm that it is an extracellular soluble protein that contains a flavin-adenine dinucleotide (FAD) legend which might be playing an essential role in reduction processes performed by that fungus extracllularly.

Analysis of polysaccharide hydrolases secreted by Aspergillus flavipes FP-500 on corn cobs and wheat bran as complex carbon sources

Strong evidences are presented indicating that the composition and heterogeneity of the used carbon source determine the specific set of protein secreted by the fungus.

Production of Enzyme and Growth of Aspergillus oryzae S. on Soybean Koji

Production of certain enzymes in soybean koji and potential to be applied for accelerating fish sauce fermentation are aimed at.

Bioconversion of soy under the influence of Aspergillus oryzae strains producing hydrolytic enzymes

Fermenting soy materials with the RCAM 01133 strain of A. oryzae is an alternative way to produce food ingredients with good sensory properties containing carbohydrates and biologically complete protein in easily digestible forms.

A genomic survey of proteases in Aspergilli

A combined analysis of comparative genomics, proteomics and enzymology tests on seven Aspergilli species, finding that serine proteases make up the largest group in the protease spectrum across the species.

Genomic and transcriptomic comparison of Aspergillus oryzae strains: a case study in soy sauce koji fermentation

This study compared the genomes and transcriptomes of an industrial strain RD2 and a strain with decreased fermentation performance TS2 to explain their phenotypic differences at the molecular level, and identified potential molecular markers that could facilitate targeted strain maintenance and improvement for better koji fermentation.

The ancient koji mold (Aspergillus oryzae) as a modern biotechnological tool

This review aims to highlight the significance of this valuable fungus in food industry, showing its generosity in production of nutritional and bioactive metabolites that enrich food fermented by it.



Genomics of Aspergillus oryzae

The genome sequence of Aspergillus oryzae, a fungus used in the production of the traditional Japanese fermentation foods sake (rice wine), shoyu (soy sauce), and miso (soybean paste), has revealed

Proteomic Analysis of Extracellular Proteins from Aspergillus oryzae Grown under Submerged and Solid-State Culture Conditions

A comparative proteome analysis of extracellular proteins in solid-state and submerged (liquid) cultures suggested that the secretion of TAA and Bgl was regulated by trapping these proteins in the cell wall in submerged culture and that secretion of GlaA and XynG2 was regulated at the posttranscriptional level in the solid- state culture.

The state of proteome profiling in the fungal genus Aspergillus.

A summary proteome map highlighting identified proteins in major metabolic pathway is presented and a combined total of 28 cell surface, 102 secreted and 139 intracellular proteins have been identified based on 10 different studies on Aspergillus proteomics.

[Isolation and properties of leucine aminopeptidase from Aspergillus oryzae].

Homogenious leucine aminopeptidase is purified from "oryzine"--mixture of enzymes produced by surface culture of Asperigillus oryzae using treatment with activated characoal, followed by

Analysis of secreted proteins from Aspergillus flavus

This is the first extensive proteomic study conducted to identify the secreted proteins from a filamentous fungus, Aspergillus flavus, when grown on rutin and glucose and potato dextrose.

Genome sequencing and analysis of Aspergillus oryzae

Specific expansion of genes for secretory hydrolytic enzymes, amino acid metabolism and amino acid/sugar uptake transporters supports the idea that A. oryzae is an ideal microorganism for fermentation.

Transcriptional analysis of genes for energy catabolism and hydrolytic enzymes in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus oryzae using cDNA microarrays and expressed sequence tags

The wheat-bran culture gave the richest gene expression profile of hydrolytic enzymes and the lowest expression levels of catabolic genes (EMP, TCA) among the three media tested, suggesting that A. oryzae uses both EMP and TCA for glucose metabolism under AC conditions.
