    Abstract : Biological pharmaceuticals are the answer to many severe diseases of today’s society. Some of these are protein-based drugs and can be produced from human blood plasma. In order to guarantee the safety of patients, absence of any pathogens needs to be ensured. READ MORE

  3. 3. Binuclear zinc transcription factors and the regulation of patulin biosynthesis in the filamentous Ascomycete Penicillium expansum

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik (master)

    Author : Robert Hansen Jagrelius; [2021]
    Keywords : secondary fungal metabolism; penicillium expansum; patulin; binuclear zinc transcription factors; dimerization; deepcoil; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis investigated the regulation of patulin production in Penicillium expansum in relation to fungal global regulators as well as the cluster-specific binuclear zinc transcription factor (BZTF) patL in silico. It also explored the state of BZTF research in filamentous ascomycetes fungi, and questioned if results in Saccharomyces cerevisiae can be freely translated to other taxonomic groups. READ MORE
