Opsins are widespread photoreceptor proteins involved in a diversity of light-driven processes in all major taxa that use the apocarotenoid retinal as a light-absorbing prosthetic group. Proteins from the opsin family are also found in filamentous fungi, but no function has been attributed to them. The fungus Fusarium fujikuroi contains two genes for presumptive retinal-binding opsins, which we call carO and opsA, and a gene for an opsin-related protein, called hspO. One report showed that carO… CONTINUE READING
