Synthesis of chymoelastase and trypsin by the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae occurs rapidly (<2 h) during carbon and nitrogen derepression in minimal media. Enzyme levels were enhanced when minimal media were supplemented with insect cuticle or other insoluble polymetic nutrients (e.g. cellulose) that were insufficient to produce catabolite repression. Addition of more readily utilized metabolites (e.g. glucose or alanine) repressed protease production confirming that production… CONTINUE READING
