Blocking hexose entry into glycolysis activates alternative metabolic conversion of these sugars and upregulates pentose metabolism in Aspergillus nidulans

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5863803
PMID: 29566661
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4609-x
call_split See protocol

[…] n submitted to Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) [] with accession number: GSE94775.Orthologous genes between Aspergillus niger CBS 513.88 and Aspergillus nidulans FGSC A4 were obtained from AspGD [] and FunCat [] functional annotation was mapped accordingly. Expression higher than 150 RPKM that had a fold change of at least 1.5 between creAΔ4 hxkA1 glkA4 vs creAΔ4 and hxkA1 glkA4 vs reference was ana […]


Protein profile in Aspergillus nidulans recombinant strains overproducing heterologous enzymes

PMCID: 5812239
PMID: 29316319
DOI: 10.1111/1751-7915.13027

[…] C) and analysed the data using a paired t‐test with Bonferroni's post‐test for multiple comparisons, where only proteins with P‐values < 0.05 were selected. The resultant sequences were imported into FunCat for mapping the sequences into functional categories and a comparison was made between the proteomes from empty plasmid‐transformed strain (Anid_pEXPYR) and the proteomes from the A. nidulans r […]


Transcriptome dynamic of Arabidopsis roots infected with Phytophthora parasitica identifies VQ29, a gene induced during the penetration and involved in the restriction of infection

PLoS One
PMCID: 5744986
PMID: 29281727
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190341

[…] software ( For all cluster analyses, we used Virtual plant 1.3 programs to assess the overrepresentation of terms from the MIPS Functional Catalogue Database (FunCatDB, [,]. Finally, we used the GENEVESTIGATOR online platform for the global analysis of publicly available expressio […]


Proteomic analysis of phytase transgenic and non transgenic maize seeds

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5569035
PMID: 28835691
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-09557-8

[…] (GO:0009987), including 44 proteins (29.9%).Figure 4 The categories of the DEPs between NT and PT maize seeds were further grouped according to their primary biological activities, as defined by the functional catalogue of Clusters of Orthologous Groups (COG) of proteins. The results showed that 131 DEPs (76.4%) were classified into 18 COG categories, among which, “posttranslational modification, […]


ER stress causes widespread protein aggregation and prion formation

PMCID: 5551711
PMID: 28630146
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201612165

[…] between different strains was performed using Venny ( Significantly enriched (5% false discovery rate) functional categories were identified using the MIPS Functional Catalogue (). Datasets for each condition were assessed for functional enrichment (P < 0.01) of functional categories (MIPS database) using FunCat (available at http://www.helmholtz-muenche […]


Paracoccidioides brasiliensis presents metabolic reprogramming and secretes a serine proteinase during murine infection

PMCID: 5711425
PMID: 28704618
DOI: 10.1080/21505594.2017.1355660

[…] suitable graphics were generated for all data. Microsoft Excel (Microsoft®) was used for table managements. The Uniprot ( and Pedant on MIPS ( database were used for functional classification. NCBI database was used for annotation of uncharacterized proteins ( The heat maps were generated using Multi […]
