Abstract: A protein kinase C of Aspergillus nidulans, PkcA, is required for cell wall integrity (CWI) and is considered a major component of the regulating pathway. To investigate whether PkcA regulates the transcription of cell wall-related genes, we constructed strains expressing pkcA(R429A) that encodes an activated form of PkcA. The mRNA levels of most chitin synthase genes and an α-glucan synthase gene, agsB, were increased when pkcA(R429A) expression was induced. These mRNA increases were not observed or were only…
