  • regulation of formation of plant biomass-degrading enzymes in fungi;
  • cellulase inducer enigma;
  • hemicellulase inducers, of monomers not detected in fungal cells;
  • cellulase and hemicellulase gene expression activators;
  • glucose triggering CCR, poorly understood in filamentous fungi;
  • nitrogen metabolite repression, regulatory in fungi for preferential utilization;
  • filamentous fungi, modulating enzyme expression and physiological traits


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • The Cellulase Inducer Enigma

  • Inducers for Hemicellulases

  • Transcriptional Regulation of Cellulase and Hemicellulase Gene Expression
