Trichoderma reesei complete genome sequence, repeat induced point mutation, and partitioning of CAZyme gene clusters

Biotechnol Biofuels
PMCID: 5496416
PMID: 28690679
DOI: 10.1186/s13068-017-0825-x

[…] A hallmark of the QM6a-v2.0 draft genome is that a third of the 228 CAZyme genes are non-randomly distributed and form several CAZyme gene clusters. Several of the regions of high CAZyme gene density also contain genes encoding proteins involved in secondary metabolism. Accordingly, it has been proposed that gene clustering a […]


Genome wide transcriptomic analysis of a superior biomass degrading strain of A. fumigatus revealed active lignocellulose degrading genes

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4469458
PMID: 26076650
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1658-2

[…] The gene families were collected by visual inspection using CIRCOS software [] (http://www.circos.ca). For CAZyme gene clusters, a cluster is defined as a region containing a statistically higher proportion of a particular gene family, and the cluster must begin and end with a gene from the family studied. […]


Trichoderma reesei meiosis generates segmentally aneuploid progeny with higher xylanase producing capability

Biotechnol Biofuels
PMCID: 4344761
PMID: 25729429
DOI: 10.1186/s13068-015-0202-6

[…] e hydrolases that contribute to the degradation of lignocelluloses and plant cell walls. Previous transcriptomic studies also indicated that adjacent or nearly adjacent genes were coexpressed in four CAZyme gene clusters located in scaffolds 1, 6, 28, and 29 []. Notably, the CAZyme gene cluster in scaffold 28 is located at the D segment (Additional file : Table S2), including an endo-β-1,4-xylanas […]


The putative protein methyltransferase LAE1 controls cellulase gene expression in Trichoderma reesei

Mol Microbiol
PMCID: 3370264
PMID: 22554051
DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2958.2012.08083.x

[…] -chains in hemicelluloses. The reduction of expression of various glycosidase genes was also reflected in the decreased ability to grow on several of their di- or oligosaccharide substrates ().The 25 CAZyme gene clusters in the T. reesei genome contain an average fivefold increase in CAZyme gene density compared with the expected density for randomly distributed genes (). In total, 126 of the appr […]
