      Background: The basidiomycete Pleurotus ostreatus is an efficient producer of laccases, a group of enzymes appreciated for their use in multiple industrial processes. The aim of this study was to reveal the molecular basis ...
    • Transcriptional and enzymatic profiling of Pleurotus ostreatus laccase genes in submerged and solid-state fermentation cultures 

      Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; Pérez Garrido, Gumersinda Upna; Omarini, Alejandra; Alfaro Sánchez, Manuel Upna; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Faraco, Vicenza; Amore, Antonella; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The genome of the white rot basidiomycete Pleurotus ostreatus includes 12 phenol oxidase (laccase) genes. In this study, we examined their expression profiles in different fungal strains under different culture conditions ...
    • Transposable elements versus the fungal genome: impact on whole-genome architecture and transcriptional profiles 

      Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; López Varas, Leticia Upna; Borgognone, Alessandra Upna; LaButti, Kurt; Lapidus, Alla; Schmutz, Jeremy; Grimwood, Jane; Pérez Garrido, Gumersinda Upna; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Grigoriev, Igor V.; Stajich, Jason E.; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (Public Library of Science, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Transposable elements (TEs) are exceptional contributors to eukaryotic genome diversity. Their ubiquitous presence impacts the genomes of nearly all species and mediates genome evolution by causing mutations and chromosomal ...
