The actin-encoding genes Scact1 and Scact2 of the homobasidiomycete Schizophyllum commune are the first actin genes isolated from higher filamentous fungi. Their isolation shows that homobasidiomycetes have two actin encoding genes instead of one typical to yeasts and filamentous ascomycetes. This result was further confirmed by cloning two actin encoding genes, Sbact1 and Sbact2, from another homobasidiomycete Suillus bovinus. The comparison of the genomic and cDNA sequences of the actin genes… CONTINUE READING
