  • A d-galacturonic acid reductase and the corresponding gene were identified from the mold Hypocrea jecorina (Trichoderma reesei). We hypothesize that the enzyme is part of a fungal d-galacturonic acid catabolic pathway which has not been described previously and which is distinctly different from the bacterial pathway. H. jecorina grown on d-galacturonic acid exhibits an NADPH-dependent d-galacturonic acid reductase activity. This activity is absent when the mold is grown on other carbon sources… CONTINUE READING
