Schematic representation of the expression of genes of glycolysis, pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) and pentose catabolic pathway (PCP) in Aspergillus nidulans after 2 h of transfer to 1% (w/v) wheat bran. Gene expression values are presented under the genes and indicated by a color gradient. A decrease in expression is indicated by green squares and increased expression is indicated by a red square. Gene expressions are average values of two biological replicates. The units used is fragments per kilobase of exon per million reads mapped (FPKM). Genes involved in the glycolysis: glucokinase (glkA; AN8689), hexokinase (hxkA; AN7459), glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (swoM; AN6037), phosphofructokinase (pfkA; AN3223), fructose-biphosphate aldolase (fbaA; AN2875), dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP), triose-phosphate isomerase (tpiA; AN6900), glyceraldeyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (gpdA; AN8041), phosphoglycerate kinase (pgkA; AN1246), phosphoglycerate mutase (pgmA; AN3059), enolase (acuN; AN5746) and pyruvate kinase (pkiA; AN5210). Genes involved in the PCP: L- arabinose reductase (larA; AN7193), L-arabitol dehydrogenase (ladA; AN0942), L-xylo-3-hexulose reductase (lxrA; AN10169), D-xylose reductase (xyrA; AN0423), xylitol dehydrogenase (xdhA; AN9064) and D-xylulose kinase (xkiA; AN8790). Genes involved in the PPP: glucose-6-phosphate-1-dehydrogenase (gsdA; AN2981), 6-phosphogluconolactonase (pgIA; AN0285), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (gndA; AN3954), D-ribulose-phosphate-3 epimerase (rpeA; AN7588), transketolase (tktA; AN0688), D-ribulokinase (rbtA; AN6985), transaldolase (pppA; AN0240), ribose 5-phosphate isomerase (rpiA; AN2440), ribose 5-phosphate isomerase (rpiB; AN5907) and ribokinase (rbkA; AN7995)
