Isolation of canCHS1A, a variant gene of Candida albicans chitin synthase.


A canCHS1A gene encoding the chitin synthase of Candida albicans was cloned. DNA sequencing and comparison with another canCHS1 gene described elsewhere indicated that the canCHS1A gene encoded a polypeptide with 775 amino acid residues, a protein with one less amino acid than that encoded by the canCHS1 gene. A six-base alteration was observed between the… (More)
