Genome Wide Analysis of WD40 Proteins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Their Orthologs in Candida albicans

Abstract

The WD40 domain containing proteins are present in the lower organisms (Monera) to higher complex metazoans with involvement in diverse cellular processes. The WD40 repeats fold into β propeller structure due to which the proteins harbouring WD40 domains function as scaffold by offering platform for interactions, bring together diverse cellular proteins to form a single complex for mediating downstream effects. Multiple functions of WD40 domain containing proteins in lower eukaryote as in Fungi have been reported with involvement in vegetative and reproductive growth, virulence etc. In this article insilico analysis of the WDR proteins in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was performed. By WDSP software 83 proteins in S. cerevisiae were identified with at least one WD40 motif. WD40 proteins with 6 or more WD40 motifs were considered for further studies. The WD40 proteins in yeast which are involved in various biological processes show distribution on all chromosomes (16 chromosomes in yeast) except chromosome 1. Besides the WD40 domain some of these proteins also contain other protein domains which might be responsible for the diversity in the functions of WD40 proteins in the budding yeast. These proteins in budding y...Continue Reading

Candidiasis (ASM)

Candidiasis is a common fungal infection caused by Candida and it can affect many parts for the body including mucosal membranes as well as the gastrointestinal, urinary, and respiratory tracts. Here is the latest research.

Candida albicans

Candida albicans is an opportunistic, fungal pathogen of humans that frequently causes superficial infections of oral and vaginal mucosal surfaces of debilitated and susceptible individuals. Discover the latest research on Candida albicans here.
