Summary of "The transcription factor TpRfx1 is an essential regulator of amylase and cellulase gene expression in ."

Perfect and low cost of fungal amylolytic and cellulolytic enzymes are prerequisite for the industrialization of plant biomass biorefinergy to biofuels. Genetic engineering of fungal strains based on regulatory network of transcriptional factors (TFs) and their targets is an efficient strategy to achieve the above described aim. produces integrative amylolytic and cellulolytic enzymes; however, the regulatory mechanism associated with the expression of amylase and cellulase genes in remains unclear. In this study, we screened for and identified novel TFs regulating amylase and/or cellulase gene expression in 1-95 through comparative transcriptomic and genetic analyses.
