Genes tubb1 and tubb2 which encode β-tubulins 1 and 2, respectively, were characterised from the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Suillus bovinus. The two β-tubulins are surprisingly divergent, with the lowest known sequence identity (60%) in any single fungal species. Comparative analysis showed that β-tubulin 1 and the intron distribution within the tubb1 gene resemble the other β-tubulins. β-Tubulin 2, in contrast, is the most divergent fully described fungal β-tubulin and the gene contains at… CONTINUE READING
