Sugar consumption by Aspergillus nidulans reference and mutants. All A. nidulans strains were transferred to 1% wheat bran. a Sugar levels in the extracellular medium of the reference, hxkA1/glkA4, creAΔ4 and creAΔ4/hxkA1/glkA4 after 8 h and 24 h of transfer to wheat bran. The asterisk indicates a significant difference for glucose after 8 h. b HPAEC-PAD monosaccharide analysis of glucose, (c) xylose and (d) arabinose from A. nidulans reference (dark rhombus), hxkA1/glkA4 (dark square), creAΔ4 (dark triangle) and creAΔ4/hxkA1/glkA4 (dark cross) after 2 h, 8 h and 24 h of transfer to wheat bran. A significant difference was identified between the triple mutant and creAΔ4 for glucose after 8 h (p > 0.05 in students t-test). Means and SD (errors bars) were calculated from three technical replicates
