Comparison between M. perniciosa pleurotolysin and other fungi. A – Alignment for similarity between ORFS of the one probable pleurotolysin B of M. perniciosa (MpPLYB) and hypothetical proteins of M. perniciosa FA553 (gb EEB89936.1), P. ostreatus (gb BAD66667.1), G. zeae PH-1 (XP_390875.1), A. flavus NRRL3357 (gbEED49642.1), C. globosum CBS 148.51 (XP_001227240.1). Strictly conserved residues are shown in black and similar residues in gray. Consensus symbols are used similarly as in Figure 7. Domain MAC/Perforin (PF01823) is present in MpPLYB (residues 1 to 258, score -35,2). B. Phylogenetic analysis of the probable pleurotolysin B gene of M. perniciosa with above-cited sequences. The evolutionary history was inferred using the Neighbor-Joining method. The bootstrap consensus tree inferred from 1000 replicates is taken to represent the evolutionary history of the taxa analyzed.
