  • The cerato-platanin family is a group of small cysteine-rich fungal proteins new to science. They usually are abundantly secreted extracellularly and are involved in fungus-host interactions. With the advance of available fungal genome sequences, we performed a genomewide study of the distribution of this family in fungi and analyzed the common characteristics of the protein sequences. A total of 55 fungal genomes, including 27 from Ascomycota and 28 from Basidiomycota, were used. A total of… CONTINUE READING
