Many microorganisms prefer easily metabolizable carbon sources over alternative, less readily metabolized carbon sources. One of the mechanisms to achieve this is repression of the synthesis of enzymes related to catabolism of the alternative carbon sources, i.e. carbon repression. It is now clear that in Aspergillus nidulans and Aspergillus niger the repressor protein CREA plays a major role in carbon repression. CREA inhibits transcription of many target genes by binding to specific sequences… CONTINUE READING
