The spore polar tube is a unique organelle required for cell invasion by fungi-related microsporidian parasites. Two major polar tube proteins (PTP1 and PTP2) are encoded by two tandemly arranged genes in Encephalitozoon species. A look at Antonospora (Nosema) locustae contigs (http://jbpc.mbl.edu/Nosema/Contigs/) revealed significant conservation in the order and orientation of various genes, despite high sequence divergence features, when comparing with Encephalitozoon cuniculi complete… CONTINUE READING
