    Identification of the genes encoding the catalytic steps corresponding to LRA4 (l-2-keto-3-deoxyrhamnonate aldolase) and L-lactaldehyde dehydrogenase in Aspergillus nidulans evidence for involvement of the loci AN9425/lraD and AN0544/aldA in the l-rhamnose catabolic pathway (2021), Environ. Microbiol., 2021, 2420-2432 .

Aspergillus nidulans ATCC 38163 A0A1U8QKS3


Synonyms Comment Organism
Aspergillus nidulans
AN0544 locus name Aspergillus nidulans
L-lactaldehyde dehydrogenase
Aspergillus nidulans


Organism Comment Expression
Aspergillus nidulans expression is induced on L-rhamnose via the transcriptional activator RhaR. The relative contribution of RhaR to the induction of aldA is the same as that for its induction of the LraA-LraC and rhamnosidase genes up
