Abstract

Historically, the proteomic investigation of filamentous fungi has been restrained by difficulties associated with efficient protein extraction and the lack of extensive fungal genome sequence databases. The advent of robust protein extraction and separation technologies, combined with protein mass spectrometry and emerging genome sequence data, is leading to the emergence of extensive new knowledge on the nature of these organisms. In this review, we discuss some recent technological advances and their role in exploring the proteome of Aspergillus spp., along with other biotechnologically relevant fungi.
