Molecular cloning of a gene encoding phospholipase D from the pathogenic and dimorphic fungus, Candida albicans

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1998 Jul 9;1398(3):359-64. doi: 10.1016/s0167-4781(98)00067-0.


A phospholipase D gene (CaPLD) has been cloned from the Candida albicans genomic DNA library. The CaPLD is a member of a highly conserved gene family of PLD and has the highest homology to Saccharomyces cerevisiae PLD (SPO14) with an overall homology of 42%. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that fungus PLDs including CaPLD composed one of the three clusters of PLD genes.
