Regulation of Trehalose Metabolism and Its Relevance to cell Growth and Function

  • J. M. Thevelein
Part of the The Mycota book series (MYCOTA, volume 3)


Trehalose is a disaccharide (α-d-glucopyranosyl α-d-glucopyranoside) commonly found in fungi and present at particularly high concentrations in resting cells and survival forms, such as spores and sclerotia. Two specific lines of research with respect to trehalose have received much attention. The first is in control of trehalose mobilization during the initiation of growth in resting cells and, more recently, the possible role of trehalose as a stress protectant. With respect to trehalose mobilization in fungi, two mechanisms have been proposed to trigger its onset, depending on the type of trehalase present in a particular species.
