  1. aMeasured as described in "Methods" section
  2. b Amino acid ratios calculated based on codon ratios in RNAseq transcriptome data, with transcripts encoding secreted proteins removed
  3. c Estimated based on the chitin content (% w/w) of A. oryzae biomass [8], and corrected for different ash contents in A. oryzae and T. reesei preparates
  4. d Carbohydrates other than chitin
  5. e Calculated based on the measured ratio of TAG:PE:PC 52:16:32 and the measured amount of fatty acid esters
  6. f Measured from lactose-limited chemostat cultures of T. reesei Rut-C30 (D = 0.051/h) described in [40]
  7. g Sum of measured free fatty acids, ergosterol, triacylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylcholine
