We describe a novel fungal expression system which utilizes the Quorn myco-protein fungus Fusarium graminearum A 3/5. A transformation system was developed for F. graminearum and was used to introduce the coding and regulatory regions of a trypsin gene from Fusarium oxysporum. The protein was efficiently expressed, processed and secreted by the recombinant host strain. In addition, the promoter and terminator of the F. oxysporum trypsin gene have been successfully utilized to drive the expression of a cellulase gene from Scytalidium thermophilum and a lipase gene from Thermomyces lanuginosus in F. graminearum.
