The insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae produces several extracellular cuticle-degrading proteases and evidence is consistent with one of these, PR1, which is a chymoelastase, being a determinant of pathogenicity. We have shown previously that PR1 production is regulated by both carbon catabolite and nitrogen metabolite repression and also by specific induction under derepressed conditions by insect cuticle. In the present work we have established that an enzymically released… CONTINUE READING
