In Fusarium fujikuroi, bikaverin (BIK) biosynthesis is subject to repression by nitrogen. Unlike most genes subject to nitrogen metabolite repression, it has been shown that transcription of bik biosynthetic genes is not AreA dependent. Searching for additional transcription factors that may be involved in nitrogen regulation, we cloned and characterized the orthologue of Aspergillus nidulans meaB, which encodes a bZIP transcription factor. Two transcripts are derived from F. fujikuroi meaB… CONTINUE READING
