Comparison of enzyme classes among several fungal species

Table 1.
  • The number of genes within the indicated haploid genomes that encode a selected set of enzymes are shown to illustrate differences in coding capacity. The entry is highlighted in pink for the species with the largest number of genes for each category. The number of proteins that are predicted to be secreted, on the basis of a predicted signal sequence, using SignalP3.0 (37), are listed in parentheses for each category. The phospholipase C entry refers to the secretory enzyme similar to Pseudomonas aeruginosa phospholipase C and not the more commonly discussed cytoplasmic phosphoinositol-specific phospholipase C. Detailed methods for the construction of the table are described in SI Text . A comparison of M. globosa and C. albicans aspartyl proteases is depicted in SI Table 13.
