Iron is essential for a wide range of cellular processes. Here we show that the bZIP-type regulator HapX is indispensable for the transcriptional remodeling required for adaption to iron starvation in the opportunistic fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus. HapX represses iron-dependent and mitochondrial-localized activities including respiration, TCA cycle, amino acid metabolism, iron-sulfur-cluster and heme biosynthesis. In agreement with the impact on mitochondrial metabolism, HapX-deficiency decreases resistance to tetracycline and increases mitochondrial DNA content. Pathways positively affected by HapX include production of the ribotoxin AspF1 and siderophores, which are known virulence determinants. Iron starvation causes a massive remodeling of the amino acid pool and HapX is essential for the coordination of the production of siderophores and their precursor ornithine. Consistent with HapX-function being limited to iron depleted conditions and A. fumigatus facing iron starvation in the host, HapX-deficiency causes significant attenuation of virulence in a murine model of aspergillosis. Taken together, this study demonstrates that HapX-dependent adaption to conditions of iron starvation is crucial for virulence of A. fumigatus.

The transcription factors families (TFs) play a critical role in the response regulation of plants to abiotic stresses. The three plant lineages (E. desvauxii, C. colocynthis & Z. simplex) can be separated on the PC1 level, while R. stricta and S. Italica can be distinguished from each other on the PC2 level. A unique 225 transcripts in each of R. stricta and E. desvauxii, 85 transcripts in C. colocynthis, 92 transcripts in S. Italica, and 41 transcripts in Z. simplex were identified. All five plants were shared in only 15 transcripts. Genes had significant gene ontology (GO), R. stricta (450), E. desvauxii (475), C. colocynthis (197), S. Italica (223), and Z. simplex (75) were significantly assigned with GO terms for 29 transcriptional processes. The most abundant TF families in the five plants were MYB followed by, MYB-related, bHLH, and AP2-EREBP (1105, 803, 53 & 472 transcripts, respectively). The zinc TF families were the most transcribed and represented by 8 TF families (PLATZ, C2C2-CO-like, C3H, VOZ, C2C2-GATA, C2C2-DOF, C2H2 & ZF-HD), with the highest one (C3H TF family, 99 transcripts in both R. stricta & Z. simplex). The regulatory network showed that as heat response, 12 genes were upregulated in R. stricta and controlled several genes in some vital processes inside the plant, while E. desvauxii and S. Italica respond to heat by upregulation of 6 genes for each, C. colocynthis by regulation of 3 genes and the least one was Z. simplex by upregulation of two genes only.
