The role of secreted proteases in the virulence of the pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus remains controversial. Recently, the Aspergillus niger transcription factor PrtT was shown to control the expression of multiple secreted proteases. In this work, the gene which encodes the PrtT homolog in A. fumigatus was cloned and its function analyzed using a deletion mutant strain. Deletion of A. fumigatus prtT resulted in the loss of secreted protease activity. The expression of six secreted proteases (ALP, MEP, Dpp4, CpdS, AFUA-2G17330, and AFUA-7G06220) was markedly reduced. Culture filtrates from the prtT deletion strain exhibited reduced killing of lung epithelial cells and lysis of erythrocytes. However, the prtT deletion strain did not exhibit altered virulence in lung-infected mice. These results suggest that PrtT is not a significant virulence factor in A. fumigatus.
