Hyp: Upstream genes (& regulators) of siderophore precursors critical
Pathway (source L-glutamine). In Yeast, 4 proteins in mito carry out ornithine biosynthesis (part of arginine biosynthesis pathway):
Checked fumigatus orthologs for up-reg in SreA or Jason's study (p0.05):
ECM40 - Afu5g08120 - not up-reg. Arg5,6 - Afu6g02910 - not up-reg. Arg8 - Afu2g12470 - not up-reg. Arg2 - Afu2g11490 - not up-reg.
Interestingly, CpcA: global regulator of AA biosynth genes is up-reg and ortholog (Afu8g02760) of the A. nidulans mitochondrial ornithine carrier AmcA, which is likely to be involved in supply of ornithine for siderophore biosynthesis is up-reg.
Further on CpcA. CpcA is not identified in the SreA study as DE. Number of genes regulated by GCN4 in Yeast that are DE in Jason's study are:
