Gene_locus Report for: aspor-cutas

Aspergillus oryzae (Yellow koji mold), Aspergillus flavus, CutL1 gene for cutinase cutinase 1 precursor (EC (cutin hydrolase 1) (l1)

Aspergillus oryzae grown in a liquid medium containing the polyester polybutylene succinate co-adipate (PBSA), produces RolA, a hydrophobin, and CutL1, a PBSA-degrading cutinase. Secreted RolA attaches to PBSA particles and recruits CutL1, which stimulates the hydrolysis of PBSA. Asp142, Asp171, Glu31 and Asp30 are involved in the ionic interaction with RolA CutL1 (Takahashi et al.2015, Terauchi 2017). Structures of CutL alone or in complex with paraoxon were solved(Liu et al. 2009). Other strains: Aspergillus oryzae (strain ATCC 42149 / RIB 40) (Yellow koji mold), Aspergillus flavus (strain ATCC 200026/FGSC A1120/NRRL 3357/JC12722/SRRC 167)
