Examples

  • This group of PCGs was defined as Ascomycota-core genes.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • It is also a member of the Ascomycota division of fungi, which contains several fungi that are very important to humans, chiefly the yeasts that make bread making, brewing and blue cheese possible and the production of certain antibiotics (penicillin for instance), as well as being related to morel mushrooms (Morchella spp.)

  • N. crassa PCGs were found in species in the Saccharomycotina (e.g. Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and / or Taphrinomycotina (e.g. Schizosaccharomyces pombe), but homologs were not identified in non-Ascomycota fungi.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • N. crassa genome was used to classify genes into six mutually exclusive lineage specificity (LS) groups, i.e. Eukaryote / Prokaryote-core, Dikarya-core, Ascomycota-core,

  • All the Ascomycota-core genes also had homologs in the genomes of Pezizomycotina fungi.

  • On the other hand, a much smaller portion (23\% on average) of Ascomycota-core, Dikarya-core, and Euk / Prok-core genes were unclassified.

  • Lau SKP, Smith DK, Yuen KY (2006) Accelerated evolutionary rate may be responsible for the emergence of lineage-specific genes in Ascomycota.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • There were only 145 genes belonging to Ascomycota-core.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Of these 2,458 genes, 34 were member of Others, 896 were members of the Euk / Prok-core, 333 were members of the Dikarya-core, 64 were members of the Ascomycota-core, and 1,081 orthologs were within the Pezizo-specific LS group.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • N. crassa PCGs were found in Basidiomycota fungi, in addition to Ascomycota fungi, and which were defined as Dikarya-core genes.
