Compensatory expression of five chitin synthase genes, a response to stress stimuli, in Wangiella (Exophiala) dermatitidis, a melanized fungal pathogen of humans


Compensatory expression of five chitin synthase genes, a response to stress stimuli, in Wangiella (Exophiala) dermatitidis, a melanized fungal pathogen of humans

PMID: 12213927

Numerous chitin synthase structural (CHS) genes have been identified in fungi, and usually there are several CHS genes per species. Compensatory expression of one CHS gene in response to defects in other CHS genes has not been reported. Five chitin synthase structural (WdCHS) genes have been identified in the melanized human pathogen Wangiella dermatitidis: WdCHS1, WdCHS2, WdCHS3, WdCHS4 and WdCHS5.
