Kmmig1 as a disrupted mutant of MIG1 encoding a regulator for glucose repression in Kluyveromyces marxianus exhibits a histidine-auxotrophic phenotype. Genome-wide expression analysis revealed that only HIS4 in seven HIS genes for histidine biosynthesis was down-regulated in Kmmig1. Consistently, introduction of HIS4 into Kmmig1 suppressed the requirement of histidine. Considering the fact that His4 catalyzes four of ten steps in histidine biosynthesis, K. marxianus has evolved a novel and effective regulation mechanism via Mig1 for the control of histidine biosynthesis. Moreover, RNA-Seq analysis revealed that there were more than 1,000 differentially expressed genes in Kmmig1, suggesting that Mig1 is directly or indirectly involved in the regulation of their expression as a global regulator.
