a Deletion of pkaA results in an earlier onset of glycoside hydrolase (GH) gene expression. Gene expression values are shown for various enzymes belonging to different GH families in the wild-type (WT) and ΔpkaA strains when grown in biological triplicates in cellulose-rich media for 8 and 24 h. b Genes encoding transcription factors important for cellulose, hemicellulose and fatty acid utilization as well as for mediating the carbon starvation response are up-regulated at an earlier time point in the ΔpkaA strain. Experiments were carried out in biological triplicates and all changes in the levels of gene expression listed here have a statistical significance of p < 0.01
