Fusarium venenatum JeRS 325, a strain which produces recombinant glucoamylase under control of a growth rate independent promoter was transformed with a plasmid carrying the Aspergillus niger glucoamylase gene under control of its own growth rate correlated promoter. Some disruption of the original recombinant genes occurred and at pH 5.8 the double transformant did not produce as much glucoamylase as JeRS 325 in batch culture. However, the double transformant still produced as much… 
Production of Fusarium solani f. sp. pisi cutinase in Fusarium venenatum A3/5
Fusarium venenatum A3/5 was transformed using the Aspergillus niger expression plasmid, pIGF, in which the coding sequence for the F. solani f. sp. pisi cutinase gene had been inserted in frame, with
Conversion of Canola Meal into a High-Protein Feed Additive via Solid-State Fungal Incubation Process
The study goal was to determine the optimal fungal culture to reduce glucosinolates (GLS), fiber, and residual sugars while increasing the protein content and nutritional value of canola meal.
Increasing the Nutritional Value of Canola Meal via Fungal Bioprocessing
Various combinations of physical/chemical pretreatments, fungal cultures, and incubation methods were investigated to metabolize GLS into cell mass, CO2, or other non-toxic components and enhance the nutritional value of canola meal.
Food-processing enzymes from recombinant microorganisms--a review.


Growth‐rate‐independent production of recombinant glucoamylase by Fusarium venenatum JeRS 325
The results suggested that a chemostat operated at a slow dilution rate would be the most productive culture system for enzyme production under this trypsin‐like promoter.
pH regulation of recombinant glucoamylase production in Fusarium venenatum JeRS 325, a transformant with a Fusarium oxysporum alkaline (trypsin-like) protease promoter.
The study demonstrates the potential for use of the alkaline protease promoter in F. graminearum for the production of recombinant proteins in a pH dependent man ner.
Recombinant glucoamylase production by Aspergillus niger B1 in chemostat and pH auxostat cultures.
Southern blot analyses showed that some morphological mutants isolated from a pH auxostat culture had lost copies of the glaA genes, indicating that GAM is a growth-associated product.
Optimization and stability of glucoamylase production by recombinant strains of Aspergillus niger in chemostat culture.
Growth tests and molecular analysis revealed that the number of glaA gene copies in this latter strain (B1-M) was reduced, which could explain its reduced GAM production, and it was shown that physiological changes in these morphological mutants contribute to this decreased level of GAM production.
Fusarium graminearum A 3/5 as a Novel Host for Heterologous Protein Production
A novel fungal expression system which utilizes the Quorn® myco-protein fungus Fusarium graminearum A 3/5 to drive the expression of a cellulase gene from Scytalidium thermophilum and a lip enzyme gene from Thermomyces lanuginosus in F. gram inearum is described.
Thaumatin Production in Aspergillus awamori by Use of Expression Cassettes with Strong Fungal Promoters and High Gene Dosage
New expression systems in Aspergillus awamori that result in very high levels of thaumatin production are provided, and cleavage of the fused protein occurred at the KEX recognition sequence.
Protoplast production and transformation of morphological mutants of the Quorn® myco-protein fungus, Fusarium graminearum A3/5, using the hygromycin B resistance plasmid pAN7–1
Driselase was found to produce higher protoplast yields than the other lytic enzymes tested (Glucanex, Novozyme, β-glucuronidase, Sigma lytic enzyme, or ICN lyticase), although yields differed for the various strains.
Molecular Characterization and Expression of a Phytase Gene from the Thermophilic Fungus Thermomyces lanuginosus
Comparison of this new Thermomyces catalyst with the well-known Aspergillus niger phytase reveals other favorable properties for the enzyme derived from the thermophilic gene donor, including catalytic activity over an expanded pH range.
The Gibberella fujikuroi niaD gene encoding nitrate reductase: isolation, sequence, homologous transformation and electrophoretic karyotype location.
A cosmid vector designated pGFniaD was generated based on niaD selection and shown to give comparable transformation efficiencies, giving frequencies of up to 200 transformants per microgram DNA, indicating that the vector may be used reliably for both types of integration.
