PRP8 intein in Ajellomycetaceae family pathogens: Sequence analysis, splicing evaluation and homing endonuclease activity
(Academic Press Inc. Elsevier B.V., 2011-02-01)
Inteins are intervening sequences that are transcribed and translated with flanking host protein sequences and then self-excised by protein splicing. Bi-functional inteins also contain a homing endonuclease responsible for ...
Inteins in pathogenic fungi: a phylogenetic tool and perspectives for therapeutic applications
(Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Ministério da Saúde, 2009-05-01)
Inteins or internal proteins are coding sequences that are transcribed and translated with flanking sequences (exteins). After translation, the inteins are excised by an autocatalytic process and the host protein assumes ...
PRP8 intein in cryptic species of Histoplasma capsulatum: Evolution and phylogeny
The PRP8 intein is the most widespread intein among the Kingdom Fungi. This genetic element occurs within the prp8 gene, and is transcribed and translated simultaneously with the gene. After translation, the intein excises ...
Phylogenetic analysis of PRP8 intein in Paracoccidioides brasiliensis species
(Academic Press Inc. Elsevier B.V., 2008-09-01)
A recent species status investigation of the pathogenic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis suggested the existence of three cryptic species. In the present study the sequences of the PRP8 intein from A brasiliensis ...
Analysis of inteins in the Candida parapsilosis complex for simple and accurate species identification
Inteins are coding sequences that are transcribed and translated with flanking sequences and then are excised by an autocatalytic process. There are two types of inteins in fungi, mini-inteins and full-length inteins, both ...
Genus Paracoccidioides: Species Recognition and Biogeographic Aspects
(Public Library Science, 2012-05-30)
Background: Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic mycosis caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (species S1, PS2, PS3), and Paracoccidioides lutzii. This work aimed to differentiate species within the genus Paracoccidioides, ...
