Stress-related transcription factor AtfB integrates secondary metabolism with oxidative stress response in aspergilli.


In filamentous fungi, several lines of experimental evidence indicate that secondary metabolism is triggered by oxidative stress; however, the functional and molecular mechanisms that mediate this association are unclear. The basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor AtfB, a member of the bZIP/CREB family, helps regulate conidial tolerance to… (More)
