Brief content Aspergillus terreus is an itaconic acid producing filamentous fungus of industrial interest. Visible light affects the development of A. terreus, it displays some form of light response. This capability is genetic in basis, mediated by photoresponsive proteins, that can activate complicated signaling cascade that leads to broad changes in gene expression. The effect of visible light was investigated at different stages of itaconic acid production by A. terreus, from inoculum production to the fermentation process.
