Viruses in fungi and eukaryotic algae: their possible origins and evolution


, : Viruses in fungi and eukaryotic algae: their possible origins and evolution. Microbiological Sciences 2(6): 181-184

It appears that isometric viruses isolated from higher fungi contain double-stranded RNA whereas those from primitive lower fungi and eukaryotic algae possess double-stranded DNA.

In the Calvin cycle of eubacteria, the dephosphorylations of both fructose-1, 6-bisphosphate (FBP) and sedoheptulose-1, 7-bisphosphate (SBP) are catalyzed by the same bifunctional enzyme: fructose-1, 6-bisphosphatase/sedoheptulose-1, 7-bisphosphat...
