[…] he supplemental material). Protein sequences of previously annotated GPCR-PIPKs (, ) were used as queries for BLAST searches (E value cutoff score of 1 e−1) against the NCBI, UniProt, FungiDB (), and EuPathDB databases () (last accessed 5 May 2017). These databases cover proteomes of a wide range of species, including archaea, bacteria, and organisms from all eukaryotic supergroups. In parallel, H […]
