To understand the evolution of Fot1, a member of the pogo family widely dispersed in ascomycetes, we have performed a phylogenetic survey across the genus Fusarium divided into six sections. The taxonomic distribution of Fot1 is not homogeneous but patchy; it is prevalent in the Fusarium oxysporum complex, absent in closely related sections, and found in five species from the most distant section Martiella. Multiple copies of Fot1 were sequenced from each strain in which the element occurs. In… CONTINUE READING
