Diversity of glycosil hydrolase family 18 genes in environment isolates of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae

Abstract

Backgound Metarhizium anisopliae is a model for host-pathogen studies due to its ability to infect several different arthropods. The first barrier to accomplish successful host-infection is transverse the host cuticle, which is a rigid chitin-rich structure. To surpass this barrier, the fungus produces several hydrolytic enzymes, among which are chitinases… (More)
