Decoding the mannitol enigma in filamentous fungi

Solomon, Peter; Waters, Ormonde D. C.; Oliver, Richard Peter

Description

Mannitol is a 6-carbon polyol that is among the most abundant biochemical compounds in the biosphere. Mannitol has been ascribed a multitude of roles in filamentous fungi including carbohydrate storage, reservoir of reducing power, stress tolerance and spore dislodgement and/or dispersal. The advancement of genetic manipulation techniques in filamentous fungi has rapidly accelerated our understanding of the roles and metabolism of mannitol. The targeted deletion of genes encoding proteins of...[Show more]
