A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Large-scale genome comparisons have shown that no gene sets are shared exclusively by both Aspergillus fumigatus and any other human pathogen sequenced to date, such as Candida or Cryptococcus species. By contrast, and in agreement with the environmental occurrence of this fungus in decaying vegetation, the enzymatic machinery required by a fungus to colonize plant substrates has been found in the A. fumigatus genome. In addition, the proteome of this fungus contains numerous efflux pumps, including >100 major facilitators that help the fungus to resist either natural aggressive molecules present in the environment or antifungal drugs in humans. Environment sensing, counteracting reactive oxidants, and retrieving essential nutriments from the environment are general metabolic traits that are associated with the growth of the saprotrophic mold A. fumigatus in an unfriendly environment such as its human host.
