Kinetic study of protein secretion in Aspergillus niger.

Anne L. Santerre Henriksen, Jens Nielsen, and David Archer.


Filamentous fungi are able to produce and secrete large amounts of proteins, but so far the mechanisms and kinetics of secretion have not been studied in details. In this study, pulse-chase experiments have been used since they allow quantitative study of protein production and secretion kinetics. Based on the experimental data the secretion of hen egg white lysozyme (HEWL) by A.niger has been modeled using first order kinetics.
