Resumen: The ascomycete Fusarium fujikuroi stands out for its capacity to produce a wide array of secondary metabolites. These compounds exhibit a large chemical diversity and very different biological properties, ranging from pernicious to beneficial for human or animals health, in some cases with biotechnological applications. For this reason, the regulation of secondary metabolism is currently an active area of research. The group of the University of Sevilla where this Thesis has been carried out focuses its attention on the study of the production of F. fujikuroi metabolites, such as carotenoids, gibberellins, bikaverins and fusarins. Their syntheses are controlled by different environmental cues, with light and nitrogen among the most relevant ones. In this Thesis we have analyzed the molecular basis of the regulation by light of carotenoid biosynthesis. Carotenoids are terpenoid pigments that provide colors or exert other biological functions in living beings. As relevant examples, in p...
