The archiascomycetous fungus Protomyces pachydermus has two group I introns within the nuclear small subunit (nSSU) rRNA gene. One of these introns has an internal open reading frame (ORF) that encodes a predicted protein of 228 amino acid residues. On the other hand, Protomyces macrosporus has two group I introns that insert at the same positions as P. pachydermus, which have no ORF. Each alignment was constructed with Protomyces group I introns located in the same position and other introns… CONTINUE READING
